How do I set my custom keyboard layout on Manjaro ARM minimal.

I'm used to be able to edit my custom keyboard layout via xkeyboard-config, but since it was not installed but I did set the keyboard during install, I realized that xkeyboard-config is meant for X11 and not the console.

But where and how on earth am I to set my custom keyboard layout then?

Keyboard layouts are set via /etc/vconsole.conf.

Why didn't you choose the correct one in the setup? :slight_smile:

Looks like I'm going to have to read this:

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Linux_console/Keyboard_configuration#Creating_a_custom_keymap

And it also turns out to be not necessary, since with ssh, I already apparently have the right keyboard layout.

SSH uses the keyboard layout of the client system.
