Incorrect MacBook keyboard mapping in console

  • Posted December 4, 2014

How can I get the DigitalOcean Control Panel console use the correct layout of my MacBookPro (Swiss German) keyboard? Even though it is a Swiss German layout, what I get in the console does not even resemble the US one…

Tried the following (with reboots) to no avail, the console keymap does not even look like the US one

  • sudo dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration (MacBookPro, Switzerland, German)
  • sudo dpkg-reconfigure console-data (pc / qwertz / Swiss / German / Apple USB)



same with swiss keyboard…
