I set up a server remotely accessible via ssh, without any DE. My password contains some characters that are not present in a standard US keyboard, however they can be typed using deadkeys. When I access the server via ssh, there is no problem since, on the client side, I've already logged in and so I can choose whatever keyboard layout I like.

Now I want to access the server directly, not remotely, (since I'm having problem with ssh), but with the US key, I cannot select different keyboard layout before the log in.

How can I solve this problem?

    What OS? How are you accessing the server "directly"? – Satō Katsura Sep 10 '17 at 18:47
  • Access the server via ssh, possibly from a laptop while standing in front of it, and change the keyboard layout as root? E.g. on Linux, loadkeys etc. – dirkt Sep 11 '17 at 6:23
  • I cannot access via ssh, because, for some reason ssh server has stopped. So I have to connect a keyboard and a screen to my server and to work with them. This is what I mean by "directly". – MaPo Sep 11 '17 at 13:01
