acer extensa 5220 keyboard issue

Post#1 by cliktrip » 05 Nov 2014, 13:28

Hello,

total newbie on linux and porteus...

Need teh kiosk to work in a hotel as a web surfing machine...

installed it, all well, put the german keyboard scheme (also tried english first).

The keyboard needs the function key to be pressed to get the g (otherwise just 6) etc...

The keys are completely mixed...

Any help really appreciated. Porteus is the kiosk software I was looking for, but with this issue it is not usable.

THX
