I have an American style ANSI keyboard (that is, with the @ above the number 2 and " above left of the shift key).
Now I have used the command: sudo raspbi-config from the main command prompt to gain access to the initial set up menu.
From there I've tried to set the keyboard type as a generic 105 key version and then set the keyboard layout as OTHER, then English (US). (as per spec on 'tinternet).
It seems to get stuck in a loop from here and goes round the keyboard type and country of origin menus. If I then press escape to go back out I get the message: "There was an error running do_configure_keyboard.
I have updated the raspi config from the menu but cannot seem to set my keyboard.
I'm guessing that once I get programming an incorrectly configured keyboard could give me many headaches!
Anyone got any ideas to solve this?
