changing the keyboard layout under linux



I recently had to write a text with romanian characters. I wasn’t able to find some GUI tool that enables me to do that.
However,I found a command line tool that did the trick :

setxkbmap ro

After someone issues that command, the romanian characters can be typed by pressing the right Alt key and the desired key.

I found this information here : http://www.gentoo.ro/forum_viewtopic.php?14.9561
