Keyboard Default Settings
Hi all

New over from the Raspberry Pi so please be gentle ! I'm trying to change the keyboard from US to standard UK. Ive read as much of the Debian help forums I can find but i have no idea which command to issue in the console to change it or which file I'm trying to change via Nano. Any help please ?

You can try this command to change keyboard layout.

sudo dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration
Thanks for that , was driving me bonkers ! For some reason my bog standard texet (model MB 798B) keyboard doesn't seem to work with 105 key UK keyboard (@ on key 2 etc) , still seems to be in US mode. After I exit I get 

update-rc.d: warning: start and stop actions are no longer supported; falling back to defaults

Back to banging my head on the monitor for now I think !  Big Grin

Update : just performed 3rd reboot after third attempt and this time its worked ! thanks again for help Smile
To reconfigure keyboard keymap without rebooting :
sudo dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration
sudo udevadm trigger --subsystem-match=input --action=change
Thanks @Gooze74 , I presume it was something I was doing wrong as each time I made the same changes but they just wouldn't pick up. Oddly when I rebooted through the GUI rather than the normal 'sudo reboot' it worked.
