Its a qwerty keyboard.
What happens if you execute loadkeys /etc/console-setup/cached.kmap.gz
Well I just removed it just in case. I will have to wait until reboot but I cannot now...
Is the contents of /etc/default/keyboard correct? It has to contain lines like the following: XKBMODEL="pc105" XKBLAYOUT="fr" XKBVARIANT=""
XKBMODEL="pc105" XKBLAYOUT="fr" XKBVARIANT="" XKBOPTIONS="lv3:ralt_switch"
What happens with the keyboard if you use the command 'setupcon' when the machine is in regular mode (not in maintenance mode)?
Well I have tried t log on a console and this does no more work either.
I am puzzled by the fact you say the keyboard doesn't work in maintenance mode but it works in normal mode. This is because in both cases the keyboard is configured by the command loadkeys /etc/console-setup/cached.kmap.gz
I was simply wrong: I discovered it when entering in maintenance mode and last time I used the console to kill xbmc or kdm it worked. Something did chnage in the mean time.
and there is nothing there to depend on /usr being mounted. Can you edit /etc/default/console-setup and put there the line VERBOSE_OUTPUT="yes" and see if there are some error messages?
Yes I get a syntax error! for Lat15-Fixed16.psf.gz. You got it because it. I attach it
