Modify the keyboard layout

To swap between keymaps and thus set keys to different language, the easiest way is to install the kbd package. To do so, follow the instructions below:

  • Install the kbd package as follows:

    $ sudo yum install kbd
    
  • To temporaly change the system keymap to, for example, English (US), run the following command:

    $ sudo loadkeys us
    Loading /lib/kbd/keymaps/xkb/us.map.gz
    
  • To see the list of all available keymaps, execute the following:

    $ sudo localectl list-keymaps
    

    It will show you a list of the available keymaps.

  • To permanetly change keymap to, for example, English (US), run the following command:

    $ sudo localectl set-keymap us
