Keyboard layout help

Hello everyone, I installed Manjaro, when I installed it, I decided to add the Russian language, I found it, but it is not normal (russian (phonetic, Macintosh)) through the command setxkbmap -layout us,ru it installs, but after a reboot it crashes, I tried almost all the methods, including pushing the script into startup and editing various files, it doesn’t help, please help:)

(Sorry if the translation is not correct in some place :slight_smile: )

I generated the locales and chose the right options

en_US.UTF-8 UTF-8
ru_RU.UTF-8 UTF-8

Please provide the output of:

cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/00-keyboard.conf

I edited there too)

# Written by systemd-localed(8), read by systemd-localed and Xorg. It's
# probably wise not to edit this file manually. Use localectl(1) to
# instruct systemd-localed to update it.
Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "system-keyboard"
        MatchIsKeyboard "on"
        Option "XkbLayout" "us,ru"
        Option "XkbModel" "pc104"
        Option "XkbVariant" ",phonetic_winkeys"
        Option "XkbOptions" "grp:alt_shift_toggle,grp_led:scroll,terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp"

(Russian appeared after the command setxkbmap)

That’s not what I asked. We can’t help without the complete information.


So it is there, apparently. It just seems that it doesn’t switch automagically…which I know some people struggle(d) with. I strongly suspect @soundofthunder might be able to help.

Because me? Not so much.

and after the reboot too, but the language is only English

I really hope you can help) because I don’t want to switch to Linux M**t :slight_smile:

So, can you help? :slight_smile:

Hello again, I solved the problem) I need one more help, I need drivers for a discrete Nvidia video card, I installed the package from the Internet, it sometimes does not display correctly (120-140 (and almost always sits lower ) fps without restrictions, although it should reach 800-1000, as it was for Winws and Ubtu

Nope, and I said so:

Please start a new thread for that. See
