Which keyboard layout do you prefer for programming?
Quite some time ago, I played around with Dvorak long enough to touch-type. I quickly came to enjoy it, but then things changed and I was forced to go back to Qwerty. The fundamental problem here is that there's a huge installed base of Qwerty, and remapping things can be very challenging, so you have to have Qwerty in your fingers. If you are capable of touch typing in multiple systems easily, then an alternate system is great, but I found that that was basically impossible for me. The neurons simply did not switch over that quickly
Cannot switch keyboard layout at GDM login
Go to Settings -> Region & Language. In the upper right corner of the window you should see a Login Screen button. If you click that button, the UI switches to a variant for system wide settings. From there you can add the input sources you want to be able to use on the login screen. If you have more than one source selected, an input source indicator will be shown on the login screen after next reboot.The button may only be visible if more than one user is registered on the system. As a workaround you can create a new user and delete it after you made the changes you desired.

Change keyboard layout (English UK) on command line to English US
I am running 14.04 LTS with a standard US keyboard. My problem was that I had relied on the installer to choose US-Intl for me and it caused "dead keys" and improper formation of the " and ' keys (as well as others I do not know about, I am sure). After a lot of frustration and trial and error, I ran the "sudo apt-get install console-common" suggestion and it fixed my problem, but only while I was logged in. When I logged out, restarted the server and back in, it failed. It only took hold permanently when I executed the "sudo dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration" command and specified the generic US keyboard."setxkbmap" did not work for me. It seems that (I do not KNOW) setxkbmap is obsolete in 14.04 LTS

Why is my Yellow Dog keyboard layout wrong? [closed]
I was not able to find anything specific with YDL (Yellow Dog Linux) and the Powerbook G4. The next time the issue arises if you could run this command and then press the problem keys, this will show you in the terminal what key was being pressed. This will help to establish whether there's a hardware issue or an issue with your YDL setup. After running the above xev command you will get a little white window that will pop up. You will want to put the mouse over this window and then press the problem keys. The name of the key should be showing up in the terminal as you press the various keys.
