Summary0000069: Keyboard layout change only working for xterm (SSH), not linux (TTY)
DescriptionKeyboard layout change doesn't have any effect for keyboard connected via USB.
Steps To ReproduceSteps to reproduce:
- write current 14.11 image to SD
- connect local HDMI and Keyboard, power up
- (work on local keyboard!) login, start bananian-config, reconfigure from "us" to whatever (let's say "de")

Now check german umlauts on local keyboard <-> connect via SSH (putty) and check umlauts again. First shouldn't work, second does.

I compared "set | less" and the only thing: different env vars PATH and TERM
PATH= (has /usr/binX11 additionally)
Totally correct so far I guess.

Additional InformationWhat I also tried:
- I reconnected the USB keyboard to another USB port.
- the whole proceudre via dpkg-reconfigure console-data / keyboard-configuration

Nothing helped...

Strange. If I don't start bananian-config from the command prompt, but from a simple script file, then it works instantaneously with the locally installed USB keyboard.

loadkeys de-latin1-nodeadkeys.kmap.gz
will solve the problem.
loadkeys de will change y an z but is not enough for the german umlauts.

When conntecting remotely via SSH you have to set the keyboard in the SSH client (=the PC you use to connect to your Banana Pi)
