comment Pipe the output of a command if it is successful
ls is a tool for interactively looking at file information. Its output is formatted for humans and will cause bugs in scripts. Use globs or find instead. Understand why: mywiki.wooledge.org/ParsingLs

comment Start rsyslog as unprivileged user
@MichaelMrozek, I understand the question fine. Also, I never stated that I thought it was useless. What I'm trying to say is that the right approach is to use the permission drop features of rsyslog to make it itself run as non-root. It will run as root only to open in order to open critical things (like the UDP ports) and then drops privileges (in a way that never can be undone without a full restart)

comment Start rsyslog as unprivileged user
@user1968963 and MichaelMrozek, you can use the $PrivDropToGroup and $PrivDropToUser variables located in the config . It should be started at boot, and with the variables set in the config file as stated in the wiki, and the manual, and in the answer above that I got from the wiki and the manual. That's the cleanest way. There's no reason you should be running it as a non-root since it runs in place of the stock syslogd.

This would be the cleanest way to do it.

Resource. The link also provides a list of available keymaps.

How does this answer merit a -1 ? You asked what the name for the keyboard layouts were. I answered keymaps. It defines what keymap the keyboard is in the virtual consoles. Keytable files are provided by the kbd package.

locale was mentioned to make sure it's not confused with the keymaps

Unless I understood incorrectly it seems like you've asked "So is the official names for these layouts are the "X keyboard layouts"or something?" . They're called keymaps, they're set using the following tools, and if they require special characters it's done through locale which isn't the same as keymaps
