Using an alternative Keyboard layout - HELP!

Hey everyone!

I am using an alternative keyboard layout (NEO 2.0) and I would like to know how to change the default keyboard layout so that I don't have to change it each time I open a new window!

Hope s.o. knows something about that!!

Don't know what Neo 2.0 is, but keyboard layouts can be added in Configuration -> Country and language

Good luck

Thanks for the quick responses but the problem is that I cannot choose the DEFAULT keyboard layout!

If anyone had a solution for this I would be really thrilled to hear it!!!

Hi Luma.

I used your screenshot.

I made the part yellow where you can set the default lang/keyboard.

Do not think that you are the only one in the world that has the same problem. I had it and thank you to this forum I have solved it.

P.D. Sorry for getting back this old thread, if an admin like to delete this post, please feel free to do that.
