Hey! I’ve been trying to change my keymap for my Debian server but It hasn’t worked. I’ve tried with console-data.

Can anyone help me find a persistant solution to change the keymap to swedish?

Try these two commands:

dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration to change the keyboard map then
setupcon to make the change permanent even after reboots.

Hope this helps.
