Hello ,

I've recently installed xfce using the guide here https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Xfce/Guide . However when I try to log in at the slim display manager my keyboard keys are all messed up! It seems like the left side of the keyboard (keys a-h) work fine but on the right side (j-l) come up as 1, 2 , and 3 on the display. Does anyone have an idea as to what is going on here?

Thanks!

You have numeric keys enabled, there has to be an Fn+<somekey> combination to turn it off, have a closer look at your keyboard.

If the problem is not at the terminal, but in sddm, I suggest look up what keyboard map gets loaded by X/sddm.

Thanks Jaglover! Issue was fixed!

Unfortunately, now when I log in i'm stuck at a blank screen with an "_" at the top. :? :(
