Keyboard Mapping

This information is not quite correct. Maybe it is out of date? It didn't work for me when I tried to change the mapping from en_UK to en_US. I will try to update it. For example, the command "sudo dpkg-reconfigure console-data" returns an error that the console-data package is not installed on the system.
