I am trying to change the keyboard layout for ubuntu 13.10 ltsp clients.

I edited /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386/lts.conf (which was empty after the install).

What works is de/german, but this is the keyboard setting that the system was installed with:

[default]
XKBLAYOUT=de

I can also change the file to

[default]
XKBLAYOUT=us

This changes all clients to an us-keyboard. But how can different clients/users use different layouts or even switch during a session?

Add to /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386/lts.conf:

[default]

XKBLAYOUT="de,us"

XKBOPTIONS="grp:alt_shift_toggle"

To switch between them by alt+shift pressing.

You can use multiple layouts same as X server:

[default]
XKBLAYOUT="de,us"

Consult the X.org documentation for valid settings.
