[Solved] kmap=x cheatcode also in textonly console

Post#1 by jssouza » 05 Nov 2016, 19:49

Hi,

I have a Swiss German keyboard and hence use the kmap=ch cheatcode. However, in textonly mode (init = 3), the layout still defaults to US and I have to manually change the keyboard layout using the loadkeys command. Is it possible to change the keyboard layout in both textonly as well as graphical mode somehow?

Thanks!

This cheatcode is run in graphical mode. Perhaps try the cliexec cheatcode to have your keyboard commands run at runlevel 3.

For example, I would run: loadkeys br-abnt2
To get a Brazilian Portuguese keyboard in text mode.

Code: Select all

cliexec=loadkeys~de_CH-latin1
