Can't login to Garuda because praimery and secondery languages

Hello Guys.
I changed my password today all english, numbers and charts

But now i'm unable to login because i can't change to my secondary language - english.

My parimery language is hebrew - and i can't log

I deffined win+space to change the praimery and secondery but it not work on my login to Garuda screen

garuda-inxi is a program you run and post the output here.

If you can't currently login to run the it, can you share which Display Mananger(DM) you are using? i.e. sddm, lightdm, gdm.

The login screen may be a different environment so your hotkeys might not work there.

This way is useful ?
I think tty override the keyboard layout

Advanced

From tty

  • type Ctrl+Alt+F2 :warning: Watchout your physical keyboard layout !
  • u get a black screen with login prompt, try to login from there
  • To switch back to gui type Ctrl+Alt+F1
  • The interface is something like terminal shell only keyboard works in tty
  • Correct some configs then reboot

Running Garuda inxi on tty if login not possible

Then running

$ garuda-inxi > /tmp/garuda-inxi.file
$ cat /tmp/garuda-inxi.file

Insert a usb drive then copy that then can send to the forum through other device

$ cp /tmp/garuda-inxi.file /path/to/device/garuda-inxi.file

i tried it now on my login screen - unfortunately it typing the K in hebrew on the password tab

thank you for your input :pray:

I suggest you login to a live USB, chroot into your installed system (where you're automatically root) and change your password to something very simple, like a 1, with passwd username.
Then you should be able to login normally (exit the chroot, shutdown and remove the USB) and can proceed in the troubleshooting.
At least provide the garuda-inxi from the USB...

Here is how to change the keyboard layout:

I was about try that now!

Half written info

Chrooting is the best way to do it
If u already have Garuda flashed usb then boot from that from there u get option to chroot in Garuda welcome
Simply type these for reference
lsblk

Not recommended

Try out all ttys one by one if any one of them allow you to login
