Well, as usual there are a million tools under Linux that can be
used to set the keyboard just like for just about anything else.
OK. The solution was actually quite simple, namely to use the
programs provided in the menus of the Yellow Dog Linux 6.2
to select the right program to set the keyboard type properly
but because I seem to be more of a command-line person of
course this did not occur to me, Yeah, times have changed.
Anyways this is what I ended up doing to fix things, and it
works quite well for me: under the default Enlightenment
window manager configuration that came with YDL: select:
YDL Button -> Applications -> System Tools -> Keyboard
This launches a program called:
which is a GUI front end to set the keyboard language
and then selected "United Kingdom" instead of "U.S. English".
Thank you for all your help,
Yep I did exactly the same. Tried the command line programs, no joy except for consoles. Xorg.conf was essentially empty. Finally found a gnome tool that set the X up in gnome, for exactly my keyboard. Never found where it wrote the info. Wasn't in xorg.conf. I had a Sidney moment then ;-)
