I hope I have understood you correctly.
You are missing the Danish layout in the login screen sddm?
If Danish is the correct assumption you can try that;
echo "setxkbmap da" | sudo tee -a /usr/share/sddm/scripts/Xsetup
It is an old problem.
Either do this after logging into your desktop or log into a virtual terminal with Ctrl+Alt+F2.
By the way, I noticed that I can’t select other layouts in my lightdm for XFCE either. This should normally be the case since it works for me on another distribution without problems. let’s see if others have the same problem.
Since you mentioned a bug for Wayland I would like to report that I don’t use a theme for LightDM under Xorg and XFCE and still have the problem. Under a current OpenSuse15.4 everything is fine with a similar configuration. Strange.
There was no other answer when I started writing mine. The main takeaway is that ArchWiki rocks As usual.
Since LightDM is a different project from SDDM, start separate issue and look at what out favourite wiki has to say about it With F37 in beta, it’s a good time for some testing (https://testdays.fedoraproject.org/events/139) and bug reporting, happy hunting!
I’m very much a Linux beginner.
The biggest problem as a beginner is that for every problem I encounter that’s just a bit more complicated I always see people listing commands that are different from each other to solve the same problem.
a.Is this because you can do the same thing multiple ways?That’s pretty horrible from a beginner’s perspective.
b.Is it because most people do not understand how software components work together specifically in Fedora?
c.in 95% of the times for Fedora and for other distros I see just a lot of people pasting commands in forums and not offering any assurance that those commands are correct in that context.
The spirit most times is “trust me bro” or “try that maybe it works…maybe it doesn’t”…
1.So as a beginner what book or multiple books are absolutely crucial and gold standard that I need to read that can offer me a correct understanding of how commands work?
2.What commands are truly universal on all distros?
3.What commands work only for Fedora and nowhere else?
The correct sequencing of commands and all the parts of one command. There needs to be some consistent logic to this…I hope.
4.After that how can i understand the software components that together makes up what Fedora is today as a distro?
Also the commands that are up to date and consistent of how to work with these components.
I honestly want if possible to contribute in some why to the distro(Fedora) that I want to use as a daily driver. If i find issues that no one is interested in fixing then I want to be able to fix them and send those fixes so everyone benefits. Can you guys help me please?
I want to go from my current level where I just see random commands to a level where these commands make sense and I know how to judge if those commands are actually solving the problem I want to solve correctly and not just some hack-ish way that temporarily fixes something.
Of course me fixing things presumes I also learn bash or programming languages that are used for different components.
All the help and recommendations you guys can give me is very much appreciated. Thank you!
It can be all of the above. For forums like this and Stack Overflow you can tell if what is posted is based on real knowlege or on just guessing. Your systems comes with a lot of documentation in form of the socalled man pages. If you want to know everything about the ls command, run the command man ls. As for the quality of these man pages it varies. Then try it out: what does ls -s do, what does ls -1 do, and so on.
As for your keyboard issue, I am not sure what it is. Normally one would look at the keyboard and determine what layout it has. Then during initial installation, that is the layout you specify and it is never changed again. localectl can change that initial choice. See 'man localectl` for more information.
