Just got my PI, i need help with domoticz & keyboard layout

Sat Apr 11, 2015 9:09 pm

Hi,

I just got my PI's , one model B+ I bought with an sd card with domoticz pre-installed and a PI 2, The PI 2 became available just after I ordered the older PI :( .
I started with the domoticz pi, and immediately had some problems.
- I cannot set the keyboard layout to Belgian
- startx does not work, I get a message that it does not exist

For the keyboard layout, I tried several things but the layout remains qwerty instead of azerty
In raspi-config I tried several keyboard laytouts nl-be, fr-be, be but no good.
I also tried sudo nano /etc/default/keyboard and change the layout to be and fr but no good either

I tried the same things after doing apt-get update/upgrade

When I put the domoticz sd cart in the PI 2, it shows a colourfull screen, but it does not boot,
do you need another distro for the PI 2 ?

Best rgds, Marc

You need a newer version of Domoticz which is suitable for all versions of the RPi including the latest RPi2 B

The information is out there....you just have to let it in.

My other Linux machines are a ChromeBox & Intel CoreDuo Desktop

Thanks for your reply.
I installed the new image, ran sudo raspi-config and did the apt-get upgrade.
The image is now running on both pi and pi2.

I am still having trouble getting the azerty keyboard layout though.
On the keyboard, connected via USB, I still got qwerty, but when I log in via putty, I get the azerty layout.
Any ideas on how to get the azerty layout going for my USB keyboard ?
I tried several things described here, but non of them work.
