Language of the VM keyboard

The default language of the VM keyboard layout is German (DE). If the keyboard you are using is designed for another language than German, then you should change the VM's keyboard layout to match that of your actual keyboard.


To change the layout of the VM's keyboard, do the following:


1.At the VM command line, type: sudo dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration. (Note that in the German keyboard layout: (i) the hyphen character (-) is located in the row above the spacebar; it is the key immediately to the left of the right-hand-side Shift key; (ii) the Y key of German keyboards is at the location of the Z key of EN keyboards.). Press Enter.

2.A keyboard configuration menu appears, which lists a number of keyboard models. Navigate to the model that best matches your keyboard. (Use the Up and Down cursor keys to navigate.) If you are not sure about the correct keyboard model, select one of the generic keyboard models.

3.Press Enter. (Alternatively, simultaneously press Ctrl and the Move Right cursor key to select Ok. Then press Enter.)

4.In the next menu that appears select the keyboard's country of origin and press Enter.

5.In the keyboard layout menu that now appears, select your language preference and press Enter.

6.Select a preferred AltGr key and Compose key. If you have no preferences, use the default selections. Press Enter in each case when done.


The keyboard layout will be changed to your selection. To change it again, carry out the procedure listed above with your new preferences.
