Of if you're running X without HAL, you can use the common
method of how things have been configured in X at a central
place: via /etc/X11/xorg.conf:
Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
Option "XkbLayout" "es"
Option "XkbOptions" "terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp"
The model "es" should be a spanish keyboard with all the
required special characters (such as n with tilde) generated
by the respective keys in their proper places.
For the text mode console, put the required setting in /etc/rc.conf:
Also load the ISO fonts so you can _see_ the characters
There are three versions for the spanish language located at
/usr/share/syscons/keymaps/, those are:
You will have to test which one fits your needs (omit the .kbd
for the rc.conf setting).
Note that you _might_ adjust settings for the shell you're using.
Here's an example for the C shell (from my modified system-wide
version of /etc/csh.cshrc), and again, remember that you will
probably have to decide which configuration fits your needs:
# "old-fashioned" version:
setenv LC_ALL en_US.ISO8859-1
setenv LC_MESSAGES en_US.ISO8859-1
setenv LC_COLLATE es_ES.ISO8859-1
setenv LC_CTYPE es_ES.ISO8859-1
setenv LC_MONETARY es_ES.ISO8859-1
setenv LC_NUMERIC es_ES.ISO8859-1
setenv LC_TIME es_ES.ISO8859-1
# with "Euro" sign, also switches program messages language
setenv LC_ALL es_ES.ISO8859-15
setenv LC_COLLATE es_ES.ISO8859-15
setenv LC_CTYPE es_ES.ISO8859-15
setenv LC_MESSAGES es_ES.ISO8859-15
setenv LC_MONETARY es_ES.ISO8859-15
setenv LC_NUMERIC es_ES.ISO8859-15
setenv LC_TIME es_ES.ISO8859-15
# use with UTF-8
setenv LC_ALL en_US.UTF-8
setenv LC_MESSAGES en_US.UTF-8
setenv LC_COLLATE es_ES.UTF-8
setenv LC_CTYPE es_ES.UTF-8
setenv LC_MONETARY es_ES.UTF-8
setenv LC_NUMERIC es_ES.UTF-8
setenv LC_TIME es_ES.UTF-8
setenv LANG es_ES.UTF-8
Note that the text mode console can hardly handle UTF-8, so this
kind of setting is more a "X preparation".
Summary: You should not have to manually set up your keyboard
layout. That has been done decades ago. :-)
