If you’re in the US like me and you start coding on your Raspberry Pi, you might quickly realize that when typing the pound key # you get the currency symbol: £
This is because the Raspberry Pi defaults to the British Keyboard layout. To change this, as sudo edit the file:
Change XKBLAYOUT=”gb” to XKBLAYOUT=”us”
# KEYBOARD CONFIGURATION FILE # Consult the keyboard(5) manual page. XKBMODEL="pc105" XKBLAYOUT="us" XKBVARIANT="" XKBOPTIONS="" BACKSPACE="guess"
Then restart your Pi.
