yesterday I installed Debian squeeze on a new laptop. As I am Greek, I need Greek characters. I tried to find “/etc/X11/xorg.conf”, but no luck. Xorg does not persist its configuration in this file any longer.
But, you can add a keyboard layout with this simple command:
$> setxkbmap “us,el” -variant “,extended” -option “grp:alt_shift_toggle”
Be aware that the above solution is fast, but it is not persistent and you will need to rerun the command after restart.
If you want to save the changes on /etc/X11/xorg.conf, then you can apply the next steps:
- Go to a terminal with Ctrl+Alt+F1
- Login as root
- $> service gdm3 stop
- $> Xorg -configure
- $> cp xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf
- $> service gdm3 start
