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

Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "keyboard-all"
        Driver "evdev"
        Option "XkbLayout" "us,cz"
        Option "XkbModel" "logitech_g15"
        Option "XkbRules" "xorg"
        Option "XkbOptions"
        Option "XkbVariant" ",qwerty"
        MatchIsKeyboard "on"
