    Default Keyboard problems

    In Backtrack3 I'm having keyboard problems. Only noticed this tonight but I havent been in Backtrack in nearly three weeks.

    When I try to type a 'y' character I get a 'z' character. And vica versa. Uppercase and lowercase. All other alphabetic/numeric characters are fine.

    I have to type a '-' character to get an apostrophe character and a to get a '-' character I have to type a forward slash character.

    If I want an asterisk I have to type Shift+3 instead of Shift+8.

    The Shift+8 and 9 characters give me my parentheses. In general, the keyboard is messed up.

    Anzone have an idea of what I might do to correct this?

    Thanks.

    I am willing to wager you either a: have a German/European Keyboard
    or b: have German/European keyboard

    It will do this when you have an english language or keyboard layout .
