Configuring your keyboard
To setup X to use an international keyboard, you just have to create the
appropriate config file in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/. This example features
a Czech keyboard layout:
# nano -w /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/30-keyboard.conf
Option "XkbLayout" "us,cz"
Option "XkbModel" "logitech_g15"
Option "XkbRules" "xorg"
Option "XkbVariant" ",qwerty"
