Thanks winni. This is getting off-topic, but: the region was already set to British English so I added a second language and selected British English.  It made no difference.  The only way that I've found to correct it is to revisit system settings -> input devices -> keyboard and hardware layout -> layouts, and then unclick and re-click the configure layouts with gb english selected.  It shouldn't be necessary -- Plasma shouldn't be being so bloody minded -- which is why I think it's something to raise on a KDE forum rather than this forum.  But thanks for trying to help.

I know, it's an old thread, but it sounds suspiciously like your problem.

Have you tried to reconfigure keyboard-config AND console-setup (Post #8 in the link)?

Thanks for the suggestion Zvoni, but dpkg is a Debian utility and my distro is from the RedHat-type family.  I'll need to find out what the equivalent commands are in my environment.

Hi!

I don't know if it's a good idea to replace "British English" with "British English".
Think about the always used code

Code: Pascal  [Select]
  1. if newValue = oldValue then exit;

Take another language to look if something changes.

Red Hat has a very well online documentation:

https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_enterprise_linux/7/html/system_administrators_guide/s1-changing_the_keyboard_layout

But I don't know: Is it allowed for a European to use Red Hat??  ;-)

Yum is the apt-get, rpm is dpkg (as far as i could find out)
