Hi, I have a problem with the keyboard layout and the SaX2 application.
Sometimes (almost always) when I start Opensuse, my original (spanish) keyboard layout is lost and I get another one (english I suppose. Shift+seven produces & instead of /, for example).
And the problem is that I can not change the keyboard layout because when i run SaX2 to choose another one, there not exist the keyboard menu nor mouse menu. I think that this occurs since I have installed the nvidia driver for CUDA, but I’m not sure. I do not know what happens, anybody has any idea?
Thanks in advance.
PS I tried to load other layouts using loadkeys but not worked, I still have the same (incorrect) layout.
give root password when asked (you will not see what you type)
type yast2 keyboard and press enter
when the keyboard selector comes up select the keyboard for your
country (i think there are several countries other than Spain which
use Spanish, you may have to try several (one at a time)
Press the “Ok” button
close the terminal
that should allow your chosen keyboard to come up when you boot, if
not, post again…and, someone else needs to tell you how to add the
keyboard and modules ICONS back into your YaST GUI (i forget how, sorry)

I tried your method but when I put “yast2 keyboard” as root, nothing appears (KDE try to charge modules, but then nothing happens, the same when I try to launch the keyboard module from the yast/hardware menu). It seems that the keyboard module is not installed, but when I launched opensuse for first times it worked properly…
So, it seems that the problem is the lack of keyboard module.
PS: I’m using the last version of opensuse 11.2.
PS2: Incredible, now I have the spanish (Spain) layout for the keyboard without doing nothing.

As I’ve already posted, it is not a bug. It is a planned feature.
