    The Keymap Is Wrong, And I Can't figure out what to do. (FreeBSD)


    At the login prompt, the characterset and customized keys works perfectly. But just when logged in, it is messed up. I can't find the cause of this.

    I have tried editing /etc/rc.conf, /etc/profile, /etc/login_conf and the rc-files in home directory. Is there any files i have overlooked?

    In X it is also messed up in xterm, but not in some other apps, like firefox.

    So, does anyone have an idea that could help. Thank you.

    Have you tried to configure keymap in sysinstall instead of manually (may require reboot)?

    In X it should be some other config for keymap, you should configure in /etc/X11/xorg.conf

    the keymaps are in /usr/share/syscons/keymaps

    read the manpage for kbdcontrol

    the X keymap is set in /etc/X11/xorg.conf (again, read the manpage.)

    The keybord configuration in sysinstall changes only /etc/rc.conf, i think. And I think rc.conf, wich apparently is loaded before login, must be correct since the keymap is good at the login prompt, but just after login it gets odd.

    It seems to be configured correct. Only in curses-emulated programs, it does not.

    the keymaps are in /usr/share/syscons/keymaps
    read the manpage for kbdcontrol
    kbdcontrol, kbdmap and vidfont used with the propper keymaps changes nothing.
