Re: Keyboard: Problems with German Umlauts: ä. ö, ü ...
I got a lot of input on this on the IRC channel tonight. Thanks to all
of you! I was almost calling it quits and going to bed when I found out
what I was missing. The LANG and MM_CHARSET environment variables
appear to be essential.
Additions to /etc/rc.conf:
Keymaps live in /usr/share/syscons/keymaps and
fonts are described in /usr/share/syscons/fonts/INDEX.fonts
IIRC -- just turned off the dfly box.
Additions to ~/.cshrc:
setenv LANG sv_SE.ISO_8859-1
setenv MM_CHARSET ISO-8859-1
Additions to ~/.profile:
(only for bash users)
(all this works with a GENERIC kernel)
I also found out that while 'kbdmap' does change the lowlevel
keymapping, 'kbdmap -s' merely reflects the LANG variable and does not
show which lowlevel keymap is in effect.
BTW, what does 'lang_abk' mean?
