Hey Fediverse, I have a technical question on #emacs..

When launching my linux without desktop, aka staying on a vconsole, when I start #emacs, keyboard input is... wrong.

For example, when using the cursor-keys, I only get capital letters (A, B) instead of cursor-movement.

Can anyone point me to a resource on how to fix that?

Boosts appreciated 🤙

@woozong is it just in Emacs, or everywhere in your terminal?

Try running "sudo dpkg-reconfigure console-setup" to set up the correct keyboard layout


@woozong sorry, should be "sudo dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration" to change keyboard layout.

Although console-setup can be handy if the encoding is setup wrong.

I'll have to check, but I think it's everywher
