Keyboard layout changed after install

Hello :wave:

When I try to enter my Luks password it won't decrypt my drive like it thinks I am typing in the wrong password when I know It is the right password.

It's like after the install of Garuda it has changed my keyboard layout to a different layout. I had the same issue on Manjaro where it did change my keyboard layout to US while I am on Nordic layout(Norwegian layout)

Before you ask yes I did change my keyboard to proper layout and tested it out before typing it in on both Luks and login password to make sure it was in the correct layout.

Is there a way for me to change the layout in rescue mode or something similar.

I don't know if this is a bug or what.
Any help would be appreciated.

Try to see if your /etc/mkinitcpio.conf includes keymap (before encrypt) and if necessary regenerate the initramfs:


It does have keymap before encrypt.

HOOKS="base udev autodetect modconf block keyboard keymap consolefont plymouth encrypt openswap resume filesystems grub-btrfs-overlayfs"

Ok, too bad...
Also etc/vconsole.conf is setup correctly?

I think so.

Unless there is another keymap for my keyboard layout.

I think this should have the code for your layout

The OS layout is right but the luks one is not which is a bit weird.

I'd try to out there the equivalent of US for your nordic layout. And maybe regenerate initramfs...

I think "no" is correct. Take a look at this thread, there may be another step: [SOLVED] Possible to set Norwegian Colemak-layout in console? / Newbie Corner / Arch Linux Forums


Now that I look at it again, I guess I'm not sure what "Norwegian Colemak" is, or if it is different than what you want. :thinking:


OMG no is Norvegian, Sorry :blush:
