Timezone, Keymap

setup

#1

To change keyboard layout

Bring up the dialog (don’t run from web)

#install package
apt-get install console-common
#reconfigure keyboard
dpkg-reconfigure console-data

Being at the rig keyboard you can set keys like this


loadkeys de
loadkeys fr
loadkeys us
#Or try this
localectl set-keymap de


As of version 0.5-26 the timezone is applied from the account setting. So you don’t need to set it manually.

By default the system comes with UTC timezone. You might want to change it.

These commands should help you with it.

timedatectl list-timezones
timedatectl set-timezone Europe/Kiev
timedatectl

Note for linux admins, there is no ntp there, it’s systemd timesyncd.
Config is here /etc/systemd/timesyncd.conf

Network timesync is already on, though it can fail with some really buggy routers and behind proxy servers.
