ProxMox - Keyboard Configs

  • To reconfigure the keyboard in ProxMox, we have 2 points to change
  1. In the Web interface

In DatacenterOptionsKeyboard Layout

  1. In the Console
  • The console does not use the same configuration as the Web, other procedures are needed.

  • The current settings are kept in the keyboard file at

cat /etc/default/keyboard
  • Example of US config
# KEYBOARD CONFIGURATION FILE

# Consult the keyboard(5) manual page.

XKBMODEL="pc105"
XKBLAYOUT="us"
XKBVARIANT="alt-intl"

BACKSPACE="guess"
  • Example of PT-BR config
# KEYBOARD CONFIGURATION FILE

# Consult the keyboard(5) manual page.

  • To reconfigure, you can change the file directly or use the support application (recommended)
