Re-mapping the keyboard on a Raspberry Pi


When I first started programming with my Raspberry Pi I found the keyboard layout was set to UK. This meant my # key (Shift+3) was a set to the pound symbol £.

To fix simply run the following from the command line:

sudo dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration

Follow the prompts. Then restart your Raspberry Pi.

The changes wont take effect until after you relog into the Pi
