keyboard config for english UTF-8
I just spent 2 hours trying to get std US keyboard response out of PI.
The closest I have gotten so far are the correct characters about the
numerals on the top row. But I'll be switched if I can get single and
double quotes out of the key left of the enter key. I have to hit the
key twice for either, but the resultant dots are tiny and for sure
aren't recognized as quotes, single or double.
ISTR I had to edit a file in the /etc directory to get an
english_US-UTF-8 keyboard quite some time back. And trying to do that
with a root session of raspi-config is a waste of everybodies time.
So, which side of my mouth am I supposed to be holding a chew of Kentucky
Twist to make the raspi-config capable of fixing this CORRECTLY for an
en_US-UTF-8 setup. Exactly none of the generic keyboards listed seem to
have the desired effect if any.
Thanks for any help I can paint on the wall for when I have to
build/rebuild another sd card.
