Change the default keyboard layout
Authored by: tidde on Sep 11, '06 04:11:50AM

This hint should be applicable also to those of us who have our own keyboard layouts, that must be installed after the Setup Assistant conversation is finished and one gains access to the file system.

The original hint worked for me, to the point of *initial* keyboard layout (that is, the keyboard layout which gets selected upon login). Setting the keyboard layout in the login window did not affect even the initial keyboard layout when logged in.

Now, *initial* is not good enough, for as soon as I select, for example, one of the time fields for an iCal event, the keyboard layout goes Swedish Pro (which was the layout I first chose when installing the OS). I must then manually switch back, which of course is extremely irritating. Since the layout typically changes without notice, I often type a few wrong charaters before I realize I have to switch back.

Does someone know how to really-really change the default keyboard layout? or why my layout may not be not good enough for editing event times?
