Keyboard layout

If you want to temporarlily change the keyboard layout, you can use the following command:

sudo loadkeys fr

fr should be replaced by the layout you want.

If you want to definitively change the keyboard layout, you have to run:

sudo apt-get install keyboard-configuration

and

sudo dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration

This may not work on your system: modifications of this documentation are welcome.

System configuration for Raspberry Pi

On a Raspberry Pi system configuration parameters are set in a file called /boot/config.txt (https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/configuration/config-txt/).

This file gets overwritten on each Volumio update so user made changes in /boot/config.txt are not preserved. To make them permanent custom settings need to be added to /boot/userconfig.txt instead.

Note: The following options do not work when placed in /boot/userconfig.txt:

gpu_mem
gpu_mem_256
gpu_mem_512
gpu_mem_1024
total_mem
require_total_mem
startx
start_x
start_debug
boot_partition
legacy_mapping
bootcode_delay
force_pvt
uart_2ndstage
start_file
fixup_file
