So, I'm an involuntary IT guy at my current position, and we have come across an issue with Caldera's flavor of Debian Linux. For some reason, with no real prompting, our keyboard starting typing chinese characters instead of English. In addition, all UPPERCASE characters are still in English.
Looking at the keyboard layout setting, it is still set to English (United States). Looking into /etc/default/keyboard , the setting is set to English, with no option for Chinese. Ditto /etc/default/locale.
In the meantime, we are able to type in all caps, but this issue has happened a few times.
Two questions: How do we fix it? How do we prevent it from happening again?
We are worried about logging out or restarting the computer, because if we log out and the character encoding remains Chinese, we will be unable to login to this computer, and it is a mission critical printer server. Any ideas?
