Running ubuntu 16.04 LTS on AMD Athlon(tm) II X2 240 Processor × 2 Kernel: Linux jg-MS-7596 4.4.0-83-generic #106-Ubuntu SMP Mon Jun 26 17:54:43 UTC 2017 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

The keyboard symbol keys are mixed up or not working at all. I can reconfigure the keyboard with command: sudo dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration.

I have to do this after each system reboot. How can I make the reconfiguration permanent?

    You shouldn't need to do that. Doesn't the desired configuration get saved in /etc/default/keyboard when you run that command? Jul 19, 2017 at 20:43
  • I checked with: /etc/default$ ls -al total 140 and there is among others: -rw-rw-r-- 1 root root 158 Jul 19 12:26 keyboard vi keyboard says: # KEYBOARD CONFIGURATION FILE # Consult the keyboard(5) manual page. XKBMODEL="logitech_base" XKBLAYOUT="us" XKBVARIANT="" XKBOPTIONS="" BACKSPACE="guess"

  • It was /etc/default/keyboard I was talking about. Confusing line break. ;) Jul 20, 2017 at 2:32
  • sorry for the confusion...I found the file keyboard in /etc/default...how do I know if this is the correct content? #KEYBOARD CONFIGURATION FILE # Consult the keyboard(5) manual page. XKBMODEL="logitech_base" XKBLAYOUT="us" XKBVARIANT="" XKBOPTIONS="" BACKSPACE="guess"

  • That means the Logitech Generic Keyboard model and the English (US) keyboard layout. Is that what you choose when running the dpkg-reconfigure command? Jul 20, 2017 at 3:53
