I did not know I could do that. Thank you.

Yes. I think I just found a major glitch: when I run dpkg-reconfigure console-data to set the Japanese layout, Squeeze systematically "forgets" about the setting after a reboot. It seems somebody else is having the exact same issue.

During the boot process, the console font changes and I think that is at that moment that the keymap get forgotten:

"Setting up console font and keymap... done." -> this message triggers a change in the console font during the boot. In lenny, that process does not exist and the keymap stays where it was set before reboot.

Would you mind explaining the difference ? I saw a uim-anthy package too.

Since my machine is relatively low spec, I am looking for the best performance and the less tweaks possible...
