Hello,

i installed slim and its running. But slim has a wrong keyboardlayout (us) i need the german (de)layout.
Where can i configurate it?

My xorg.conf has the german layout. But i don't know which script slim need.



Best regards

I never had to change my keyboard layout, so this is a suggestion, not something I know for sure. Have you checked /etc/slim.conf for keyboard layout options?

here are my slim.conf:

Code:

# Path, X server and arguments (if needed)
# Note: -xauth $authfile is automatically appended
default_path        ./:/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/local/bin
default_xserver     /usr/bin/X
xserver_arguments   -nolisten tcp -br -deferglyphs 16

# Commands for halt, login, etc.
halt_cmd            /sbin/shutdown -h now
reboot_cmd          /sbin/shutdown -r now
console_cmd         /usr/bin/xterm -C -fg white -bg black +sb -T "Console login" -e /bin/sh -c "/bin/cat /etc/issue; exec /bin/login"
#suspend_cmd        /usr/sbin/suspend

# Full path to the xauth binary
xauth_path         /usr/bin/xauth

# Xauth file for server
authfile           /var/run/slim.auth


# Activate numlock when slim starts. Valid values: on|off
numlock             off

# Hide the mouse cursor (note: does not work with some WMs).
# Valid values: true|false
# hidecursor          false

# This command is executed after a succesful login.
# you can place the %session and %theme variables
# to handle launching of specific commands in .xinitrc
# depending of chosen session and slim theme
#
# NOTE: if your system does not have bash you need
# to adjust the command according to your preferred shell,
# i.e. for freebsd use:
# login_cmd           exec /bin/sh - ~/.xinitrc %session
login_cmd           exec /bin/bash -login ~/.xinitrc %session
#login_cmd           exec /bin/bash -login /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc

# Commands executed when starting and exiting a session.
# They can be used for registering a X11 session with
# sessreg. You can use the %user variable
#
# sessionstart_cmd   some command
# sessionstop_cmd   some command
sessionstart_cmd   /usr/bin/sessreg -a -l :0.0 %user
sessionstop_cmd     /usr/bin/sessreg -d -l :0.0 %user

# Start in daemon mode. Valid values: yes | no
# Note that this can be overriden by the command line
# options "-d" and "-nodaemon"
daemon   yes

# Available sessions (first one is the default).
# The current chosen session name is replaced in the login_cmd
# above, so your login command can handle different sessions.
# see the xinitrc.sample file shipped with slim sources
sessions            fluxbox,xfce4,icewm,wmaker,blackbox

# Executed when pressing F11 (requires imagemagick)
screenshot_cmd      import -window root /slim.png

# welcome message. Available variables: %host, %domain
welcome_msg         Welcome to %host

# Session message. Prepended to the session name when pressing F1
# session_msg         Session:

# shutdown / reboot messages
shutdown_msg       The system is halting...
reboot_msg         The system is rebooting...

# default user, leave blank or remove this line
# for avoid pre-loading the username.
default_user        martin

# Focus the password field on start when default_user is set
# Set to "yes" to enable this feature
#focus_password      no

# Automatically login the default user (without entering
# the password. Set to "yes" to enable this feature
#auto_login          no


# current theme, use comma separated list to specify a set to
# randomly choose from
#current_theme       slim-gentoo-simple
current_theme       flat

# Lock file
lockfile            /var/run/slim.lock

# Log file
logfile             /var/log/slim.log

hello @ all,

i got a solution for my problem .-)

At first i did this as root:
Code:

cp /usr/share/hal/fdi/policy/10osvendor/10-keymap.fdi /etc/hal/fdi/policy


then i opened the file /etc/hal/fdi/policy/10-keymap.fdi
and changed the "us"-layout into the "de"-layout.
Code:

<merge key="input.xkb.layout" type="string">de</merge>


thats it!
