Keyboar layout problems

– Please Write here your help request –
The keyboard layout works but cannot write properly according to the layout chosen. Every layout of the same language write the same way and I used Parrot OS before and the layout appear normally, each key each character or in some two. But right now appear 4 character per key and cannot use ´ over letters.

  • ParrotOS iso in use:


  • Application used for flashing the iso:
    Balena Etcher

  • Logs/Terminal output (use pastebin or similar services):
    localectl list-keymaps
    Failed to read list of keymaps: No such file or directory

  • Screenshots:

a new problem appeared, when i paste something in a terminal with a custom command something appears (folders info) in each line while in the past it does not do that. Is there some method to restore the keyboard configuration?

Go to settings or preferences or profile,… (or any similar menu option, Idr the name)
