Problem with my raspberry pi 3:
I have a problem: my keyboard layout changed somewhere after the october update. I am using a Rii i8 mini wireless keyboard and somehow some characters are located in a wrong place.
Instead of the letter “m” I see a semi-colon “;”, the letter m has moved all the way to the right where the forward slash “/” should be.
I’ve done some searching on this forum, tried the first solutions that were offered, including:
- reconfiguring the locale
- installing console-data and console-update and reconfiguring the console keyboard
- I’ve checked the settings of kodi and reset them (chose a different country, then back to my own country).
Still no luck, alas.
Anyone have an idea on how to approach this further?
Thanks in advance,
I also have the same issue with the exact same symptoms. Started after updating to OSMC Krypton-beta3 I believe.
It is still there in the Kodi Krypton Beta 7 from here:
I couldn’t find anything helpful anywhere, so I created a new keymap file for the Rii Mini i8 keyboard.
You can download it here: https://github.com/hablaras/rii-keymap/raw/master/rii.kmap.gz
Copy rii.kmap.gz to /usr/share/keymaps/i386/qwerty/
Test using “loadkeys”:
root@osmc:/home/osmc# loadkeys rii
The change is effective immediately in OSMC; no reboot needed
Add loadkeys rii to /etc/rc.local file one line above “exit 0” and set 755 (execution allowed) on that file:
I haven’t mapped the special keys like volume up, volume down, mail, mute, etc. Don’t know if they work.
Tested on OSMC Krypton RC4
I found a solution: my keyboard was broken, so I bought a new one. That fixed it. No idea how this can be helpful, but maybe an approach would be to reinstall a driver or something.
