According to the following threads it was said, that in Kodi 18 you can change the hardware keyboard layout directly in Kodi?
Am I missing something, because this is not working for me.
I have set the keyboard layout to Danish in Settings>Interface>Regional But it is still GB layout.
Continuing the discussion from German Keyboard Layout:
Settings->Interface->Regional sets the layout for a hardware keyboard.
Oops! see below.
Sorry, forgot to mention that it is a logitech K400 keyboard i am talking about.
In kodi 17 I used the followong command to change the keyboard, but Sam did not recommend doing it this way.
sudo apt install console-common
sudo dpkg-reconfigure console-data
No, that should no longer be necessary. If the Region settings aren’t working, that’s a Kodi issue. Though you may have to make sure the OS has the necessary keyboard layouts installed.
I can’t test atm - away from home.
Thank you for your answer.
How do I make sure that the necessary layouts are installed and if not, how do i install them?
Apologies. It’s Settings->System->Input->Keyboard layouts that sets the hardware layouts.
Thank you very much, totally missed that one myself.
