The keyboard is one of the key devices used to interact with the computer. In order to be able to type correctly on multiple computers, the keyboard layout is standardized. Unfortunately, some countries have different requirements for the characters that must be on the keyboard, and even countries that share the same language often have different variations of the layout. This means that you need to be careful when buying a keyboard from an international store to ensure that it has the right layout for you.

The thing is, the keyboard itself doesn’t control the letters that the operating system associates with the keys you press, the operating system does. This means that you should be able to change the keyboard layout in the operating system. This is especially useful if you accidentally selected the wrong areas during the installation process or if you prefer a less popular keyboard layout.

Linux Mint offers the ability to change the keyboard layout and comes with a large number of international options to choose from. To configure the keyboard layout you use in Linux Mint, press the Super key, type “Keyboard” and press Enter.
