For future reference for readers...

in calamares you can also choose the keyboard here is the dropdown picture



Which one did you choose in the end for this machine? There are 3 choices
I select Apple Aluminium (ANSI)
I have a new issue, Everything works good with the keyboard now except in the login screen, When I in the login screen the keyboard layout not work until i log into desktop.
The O.S use the default layout on login screen instead of Apple Aluminium.

this is my file in X11

Code: Select all

# Read and parsed by systemd-localed. It's probably wise not to edit this file
# manually too freely.
Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "system-keyboard"
        MatchIsKeyboard "on"
        Option "XkbLayout" "be"
        Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
EndSection
it is the XkbModel thing that needs be changed
Learn, have fun and enjoy.
