The KEYMAP variable is specified in the Template:Filename file. It defines what keymap the keyboard is in the virtual consoles. Keytable files are provided by the Template:Package Official package.

Keyboard layouts

This is the list of known keymap settings to work for the corresponding keyboard layouts. Usually the "map.gz" extension can be ignored. Most keymaps can be found in the Template:Filename (layout=qwerty, azerty, dvorak, etc.) directory.

Less common but nonetheless useful keymaps for Arch Linux are found in the Template:Filename (architecture=mac, sun, etc.) directory.

Note: In an X session, you can use setxkbmap to instantly apply keyboard layout: Template:Codeline
Note: If these keymaps do not work for you, try removing the Template:Codeline from the keymap name. If that does not work, make sure the keymap file exists in Template:Filename using Template:Codeline: Template:Codeline
