I want to set permanent Japanese keyboard layout for X Windows in Kali Linux (Rolling Edition 2016.1, testing with
kali-2016.1 Vagrant box).
Setting Japanese keyboard manually through All Settings -> Region and Language -> Input Sources works ok and is persistent. I want to provision the same settings through a script.
For ad-hoc configuration I run:
setxkbmap -layout jp
which works until user logoff. It does change the layout, however it does not add/change Input Source in settings panel.
For persistent configuration I tried the following (with no success):
I created directory
/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/00-keyboard.confwith the following content:
Section "InputClass" Identifier "system-keyboard" MatchIsKeyboard "on" Option "XkbLayout" "jp" Option "XkbModel" "" Option "XkbVariant" "" Option "XkbOptions" "" EndSection
But it has no effect.
I tried running:
localectl --no-convert set-x11-keymap jp
which supposedly should create
00-keyboard.conf, but although it ends with no error, it does not create the file.
Settings for console work ok (Japanese layout is active when typing username at the logon screen). My
And I have also setting in
How can I set persistent keyboard layout from CLI?
