I'm trying to install Ubuntu 20.04 Server, but it has issues detecting hard drives. To figure out what's wrong, I switched to the installer shell session with F2. Now I'm trying to enter a command that requires a file path as parameter, but I cannot get Ubuntu to type a
/ into the terminal.
This is a remote server, I'm connected through VNC during the setup, I'm typing on a keyboard with German keyboard layout. Here's what I've tried so far
- try to type
Shift+7(as written on my keyboard):
- hit the key left of
/is on US keybaords):
-appears (this is what you'd expect from a German layout, but then why is
loadkeys de: I get a bunch of warnings about
Unknown X keysym "dead_belowmacron"
_and the key left of
right shiftproduces nothing
loadkeys us: back to the previous behavior
dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration: same results as with
The keyboard layouts appear to be completely messed up. With the US layout, many keys on my German keyboard produce exactly what's written on them, even though I loaded the US layout. On the other hand, when I load the German keyboard layout, it's even more broken and many keys cease to function entirely.
Is there any way I can type a
/ in this terminal? This seems so ridiculous...
