    In other distros I can write letters as á with “´” + “a”. Now, how do I do write an á and similar letters in AntiX?

    Are you talking about using a different keyboard layout for your language? Use Control Centre System > Set System Keyboard Layout and select the one that corresponds to your country.

    Yes, I tried that, but it makes no difference. I can choose between two layouts, one ‘no dead keys’ and one with ‘Win-keys’ (my translation from Danish)

    If your keyboard is a “normal” (no special feature) danish keyboard (http://kbdlayout.info/KBDDA/), you DONT need to select any variants (leave empty)

    If it still doesn’t work, try the Control centre > Session > Change Keymap for session, Denmark > Danish (Apply and test).

    I have just run a lshw:

    id: firmware

    capabilities: … int9keyboard …

    I do not know if I should be able to choose a int9keyboard, but I can’t in Set System Keyboard Layout

    If you run antiX 17.4 live (from CD or USB), and select Danish (Dansk) Language on the boot menu (F2 option), and boot into the live media, open a editor and start writing.
    Does the keyboard work correctly (as intended) using the apostrophes (á à) as you expect?

    Which version of antiX are you using?

    Philosophers have interpreted the world in many ways; the point is to change it.

    antiX with runit - leaner and meaner.

    What is in /etc/default/keyboard?

    For Danish and US keyboard you need

    
    XKBMODEL="pc105"
    XKBLAYOUT="dk,us"
    XKBVARIANT=""
    XKBOPTIONS=""
    
    BACKSPACE="guess"

    and á with “´” + “a”. works as it should

    # Consult the keyboard(5) manual page.

    XKBLAYOUT=”dk,dk”
    XKBVARIANT=”nodeadkeys,winkeys”
    XKBOPTIONS=”terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp”

    BACKSPACE=”guess”

    I added to my post above you last one to how it should be.
    You can leave your XKBOPTIONS=”terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp”

    Now I have edited /etc/default/keyboard, but that did not solve my problem. Instead I just got an american keyboard layout, so I do not have my Danish letters and now I don\t know how to find various characters, eg. the \ wasn\t intended here.

    In your other post you say you stated with antiX-16. Here you say you have antiX-17.4.
    Don’t mess us about.
