I switched from Qwerty to Dvorak, but the login screen still uses Qwerty.
How can I configure the login screen to use Dvorak?
In Ubuntu / Natty, edit the file /etc/default/keyboard, look for the XKBVARIANT setting, and set it to this:
This will tell GDM, the login manager, which keyboard layout to use per default.
Note: the comments in the file warn that this only takes effect after udev is restarted; I would just reboot the machine after changing it.
