How to change keyboard settings


Hi guys!

How can I change the keyboard settings from english to german? I’ve installed Debian Version for RockPi but I didn’t find anything in the settings.

Thanks for your help.

Change language and keyboard layout for unbuntu

I wrote it down from memory and hope that’s right. :wink:

export LANG=de_DE.UTF-8						
sudo dpkg-reconfigure locales
[*] de_DE.UTF-8 UTF-8
sudo dpkg-reconfigure tzdata						
sudo dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration
set to German - no dead keys
sudo dpkg-reconfigure console-data
sudo reboot

If this doesn’t work, you may be missing some of the necessary packages, then install them and try again.

sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade
sudo apt install console-data 
sudo apt install console-setup
sudo apt install console-locales
sudo apt install keyboard-configuration


Written down from memory: I am impressed.

And it worked too :slightly_smiling_face:
Now everything’s in German.

Thank you very much.
