My apologies. Yes, I had tried similar Options as described in a number of sites, including, I think FreeBSD and Xorg. Only the man pages showed different inputs. I don't know where you got the fr_CA.iso.acc; my installation showed the available keymaps as fr_CA.iso.acc.kbd kbdmap -s returns You are not on a virtual console - expect strange side effects lang_default = en dialect = fr_...ISO8859-1 lang_abk = fr Currently supported languages: da de el en es fr hy iw no pl pt ru sv uk ===== Interesting, eh? where does fr_CA fit in and how? For Xorg here is what I had found on http://markmail.org/messsage/yvq7qqnqhq33hqgf Option "XkbModel" "pc104" Option "XkbLayout" "us,ca" Option "XkbOptions" "grp:toggle" That is what I had tried; it didn't work. I had tried keymap="fr_CA.iso.acc.kbd" and that gave(gives) the correct keyboard on the console. Except, it spews out French error messages (tiresome=ennuiyant). The Option "XkbLayout" "us,ca" - I have no idea where it comes from and I sure would like to know what to enter for that to try it out. And where does the "grp:toggle" come from? I just went through the same routine and I can't find any combination that works with the information I have been able to gather. :-(
