Keyboard Font problem - A solution
On 07/09/12 12:26, Bob Goodwin - Zuni, Virginia, USA types:

I posted this two days ago and got no response. I find it hard to
believe that I am the only one with this problem. Perhaps someone
can try selecting "US International keyboard" and see if it can be
unselected restoring "US English keyboard" again and keeping it upon
reboot. This is really causing me a lot of inconvenience and I don't
know how to fix it short of re-installing F-17. I could probably
reset it after reboot with a simple script but I don't know
how/where to select the keyboard setup from the command line that,
would work around the problem 'til F-18 comes along.

I have two F-17 64 bit computers in which once I selected "US
International" keyboard under Administration > Keyboard that
selection seems always to come up in reboot although the selection
has been changed to "US English." That change takes effect once I go
through the motion of changing it, that is to bring up the GUI menu
and close it while doing nothing else, it already says US Keyboard
is selected, apparently "closing" that menu restore the US settings
until user bobg logs off, when I log on again I have to "fix" the
keyboard. problem.

I tried creating a new user "rfg" and logged off/on with the same

Any idea what is wrong?


On two computers here the GUI leaves /etc/sysconfig/keyboard set to
"US International" after "US English" has been selected. It is
necessary to edit the file manually to remove the line
VARIANT="intl" after which the keyboard functions normally when the
system is re-booted.
