I have a raspberry pi model b. I am using it with a WASD Code V2 keyboard, normally configured for my MacBook, with a Norwegian keyboard layout. The locale/keyboard settings are all set to Norwegian on the PI. I’m not using a GUI.

Most keys work as expected (including Norwegian æøå), but some keys don’t. shift+4 gives a “*”-like symbol and option does not seem to work at all. This makes it hard for me to write programs.

Any help is greatly appreciated! Olaven

  • Are settings correct in /etc/default/keyboard?

  • If you can't find another solution, you can manually tweak the keymap in a GUI context with this and on the console with loadkeys.

  • Thanks. Loadkeys respond with “cannot find defkeymap.map” when passing —default. And “couldn’t get a file descriptor referring to the console” when just running it. How do I use it correctly?
