I have a LUKS encrypted LVM with arch Linux. The bootloader is (obviously) not on the encrypted LVM, and does not use the keymap I set with localectl. Therefore, I can decrypt the volume, but once I try to login, it goes to a very strange keymap, not DVOREK or QWERTY or anything purposeful, but just is not mapped correctly for this keyboard. It started after I ran
sudo localectl set-keymap mac-us, as I'm on a mac book pro, and was trying to get the tilde key to type ~ and ` instead of < and >. Is there anyway, without another linux install (though I do have an arch linux installer USB), to fix this and reset the keymap to
us. I really don't care about fixing the tilde key at this point, but if anyone knows how to fix it, that would be nice.
It is a full install, I was just mentioning the option of a live usb. It is on a partition of my main HD. It boots up into console mode, it has wayland and sway though as a UI, but I can't get that far. I can't get past login, because typing in the username is so terrible, some random keys hit return, some power off, but none type the correct character. Also, if anyone can post the keymap file of the us layout and the mac-us layout, I could just use it as a translation table and fix it that way.
