Trying to examine why i cant insert acute accent diacritic over greek vowels i come upon the console-common package.
Trying to install it i get prompted:
-Select keymap from arch-list
// select one of the predefined keymaps specific for your architecture.
// (recommended for non usb keyboards)
-Dont touch keymap
// Dont overwrite the keymap in /etc/console
// which is maintained manually with install keymap
-Keep kernel keymap
// prevent from any keymap being loaded the next time system boots
-Select keymap from full list
// list all predefined keymaps. Recommended when using
// cross architecture (often USB) keyboards
So i wonder.. will that keymap mess with my X server or not?
How come that package was not installed ? Was my virtual console
working with another keymap and if so then do i need console data?
