No puedo cambiar el teclado de mi servidor a uno español. He seguido las configuraciones oportunas pero no ha dado resultado

Buenas, estoy intentado poner el teclado de mi servidor al español, el keyboard layout.

En teoria está configurado pero no funciona. Si ejecuto el comando ‘locale’ obtengo todo en 'esEs.UTF-8’ que es asi como lo he querido configurar. Pero no parece surtir efectos ya que comandos como 'shift + 7’ no pone ’/’ sino ’’.

No se que mas podria probar.

Hi @joseangelcabezarn,

You mentioned you’ve configured the locale however please go over these steps one more time and see if it would help you out:

The default settings are stored in the /etc/default/locale file.

$ cat /etc/default/locale 

This file can either be adjusted manually or updated using the tool, update-locale.

# update-locale LANG=de_DE.UTF-8

You will find a list of all LC_* environment variables at [1].

This becomes useful for example when a system should be operated in German, however, the error and system messages should be displayed in English. This is often helpful when searching for errors. In this case, the following settings can be made to /etc/default/locale:


The LC_MESSAGES variable also influences the language of the user interface or the window manager.

Please note:

Date and number specifications are not affected by a change from LC_MESSAGES.
