I am testing your Torizon software.
I downloaded TorizonCore release 5.7.2-devel-20221022+build.701.modified.container release - the one from your tutorial - and directly plugged a AZERTY keyoboard on it (wireless Logitech K270).
Board is Yavia / iMX8MP
AZERTY keyboard is not recognized, so that I have to type ‘Q’ instead of ‘A’, ‘W’ instead of ‘Z’…
Is there a way to fix it?
Have you tried to run “setxkbmap fr” command to set the keyboard layout to French AZERTY.
torizon@verdin-imx8mp-xxxxxxxxxx:~$ setxkbmap fr
-sh: setxkbmap: command not found
I tried the command on latest torizoncore release.
Please note it is not an important issue for us, it is not really a problem
Besides, as I have to shift to another task, I am going to leave that problem aside for the moment, so the issue can be postponed
Hi @christophe93 ,
Just to confirm, where exactly are you trying to type? Inside Portainer, Weston (the graphical interface) in general, or does the issue occur when connecting to the board via SSH/Serial?
the problem occurs when using the graphical interface. For example, the first time, entering a password for admin account.
There is no such a problem when connecting from remote. It is only when directly typing from a keyboard connected to Toradex board
Hi @christophe93 ,
In this case you can change
weston.ini located in
/etc/xdg/weston/ inside of the Weston container. Add these lines to the file:
With this my QWERTY keyboard got recognized as an AZERTY one, so I think this should work for you.
As for how to change this inside of a container, you can copy this weston.ini to the SoM with the above lines appended then bind mount it when starting the container.
Let me know if you need more details about the procedure above.
Thank you Lucas,
I think I will have the possibility to check how this works, tomorrow.
I checked it works, my AZERTY keyboard is working fine
Glad I was able to help!
