When you install MakuluLinux 10 Aero to your PC, you can choose the keyboard layout for your PC. This layout will be active during the installation, but currently there is a bug in the installer which doesn't keep this keyboard layout once you have booted up into the newly installed environment.

So, if you can't logon with your password, use the US english layout to enter the password.

Once you are logged on, open the "System Settings", scroll down to the "Hardware", "Keyboard" section, click on it and select the "Layout" tab. Now click on the + and select your keyboard and add it. Then move it above the US english keyboard (or remove the US keyboard).

Now you'll have the correct keyboard setup.

Thank you very much for your wonderful job! It looks really really  great!
There is one difficulty I faced with. When I trying to log on I can't switch keyboard layout to English. My password is in English and I have  the US English keyboard above my language in the "Keyboard" section. It stays at my language anyway. Sorry for my English [smile]

I'm not sure I understand your problem. Did you change the keyboard from English to something else during the installation? Are you logged on to Makulu at the moment?

Yes, I've changed the keyboard from English to my language during the installation. And after restart I couldn't log on because it was impossible to change keyboard layout back to English. I've tried different ways to do it and finally made installation from the beginnig, but now without password prompt. It's not a big deal to me. Just so you know. May be I am doing something wrong.

Thank you

In that situation you'd have to imagine the layout of the English keyboard and enter your password according to how that keyboard would look.

For example I have a Swiss German Keyboard. One difference of the Swiss German keyboard when compared to an English US keyboard, is that on my keyboard the "z" is where the "y" would be on an English keyboard, and the "y" on my keyboard is where the "z" is on an English one (My Swiss German Keyboard has a "Qwertz" layout, while the English keyboard has a "Qwerty" layout).

So if my password included a "z" I would have to press the "y" key during login.

After that, once you are logged in, you can use my guide above to add your keyboard again and make that the default layout. Now when logging in your own keyboard should be correct.

It probably helps for the future to have an example for the US English keyboard layout:

I found that this is Linux Mint bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/linuxmint/+bug/997140
I have to apply a change in /etc/default/keyboard:

I have to set XKBLAYOUT="en" and then it works...
