i've setup ctkarch on usb the uk keyboard worked fine till i set it up for persistance now it shows up as set to uk at boot up but when it reaches the desktop it defalts to us layout, I installed xxkb but that does not even start fbxkb just shows us layout and does not switch the other one is dead. this is a blow as i need the uk keyboard layout. help would be appreiated. that apart GTKarch is  really  polished since the last time I tried it and fits the bill on this laptop as i need to use a stick for linux and the other flavours with persistance are a let down.

1/ I'm interested to correct that if this is a bug. Can you put on pastebin the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-evdev.conf on the live system with the persistant partition? Thanks.

2/ Whatever happens, as a workaround you can add setxkbmap gb at the end of ~/.config/openbox/autostart.sh on the live system with persistence.

3/ On the already installed system, you can edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-evdev.conf and change "us" to "gb".

thanks for the quick reply

Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "evdev keyboard catchall"
        MatchIsKeyboard "on"
        MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
        Driver "evdev"
Option "XkbLayout" "us"
Option "XkbVariant" ""
Option "XkbOptions" "compose:menu,terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp,keypad:pointerkeys"

i'd forgten about putting add setxkbmap gb at the end of ~/.config/openbox/autostart.sh i was using code from the wiki but it works so thats OK with me

Did you choose the UK keymap in the boot menu when you started the live system to copy the contents of 10-evdev.conf?
