NAME
       localectl - Control the system locale and keyboard layout settings

SYNOPSIS
       localectl [OPTIONS...] {COMMAND}

DESCRIPTION
       localectl may be used to query and change the system locale and keyboard layout settings.

       The system locale controls the language settings of system services and of the UI before
       the user logs in, such as the display manager, as well as the default for users after
       login.

       The keyboard settings control the keyboard layout used on the text console and of the
       graphical UI before the user logs in, such as the display manager, as well as the default
       for users after login.

OPTIONS
       The following options are understood:

       -h, --help
	   Prints a short help text and exits.

       --version
	   Prints a short version string and exits.

       --no-pager
	   Do not pipe output into a pager.

       --no-ask-password
	   Do not query the user for authentication for privileged operations.

       -P, --privileged
	   Acquire privileges via PolicyKit before executing the operation.

       -H, --host
	   Execute the operation remotely. Specify a hostname, or username and hostname separated
	   by "@", to connect to. This will use SSH to talk to a remote system.

       --no-convert
	   If set-keymap or set-x11-keymap is invoked and this option is passed, then the keymap
	   will not be converted from the console to X11, or X11 to console, respectively.

       The following commands are understood:

       status
	   Show current settings of the system locale and keyboard mapping.

       set-locale LOCALE...
	   Set the system locale. This takes one or more assignments such as "LANG=de_DE.utf8",
	   "LC_MESSAGES=en_GB.utf8", and so on. See locale(7) for details on the available
	   settings and their meanings. Use list-locales for a list of available locales (see
	   below).

       list-locales
	   List available locales useful for configuration with set-locale.

       set-keymap MAP [TOGGLEMAP]
	   Set the system keyboard mapping for the console. This takes a keyboard mapping name
	   (such as "de" or "us"), and possibly a second one to define a toggle keyboard mapping.
	   Unless --no-convert is passed, the selected setting is also applied to the default
	   keyboard mapping of X11, after converting it to the closest matching X11 keyboard
	   mapping. Use list-keymaps for a list of available keyboard mappings (see below).

       list-keymaps
	   List available keyboard mappings for the console, useful for configuration with
	   set-keymap.

       set-x11-keymap LAYOUT [MODEL] [VARIANT] [OPTIONS]
	   Set the system default keyboard mapping for X11. This takes a keyboard mapping name
	   (such as "de" or "us"), and possibly a model, variant and options, see kbd(4) for
	   details. Unless --no-convert is passed, the selected setting is also applied to the
	   system console keyboard mapping, after converting it to the closest matching console
	   keyboard mapping.

       list-x11-keymap-models, list-x11-keymap-layouts, list-x11-keymap-variants [LAYOUT],
       list-x11-keymap-options
	   List available X11 keymap models, layouts, variants and options, useful for
	   configuration with set-keymap. The command list-x11-keymap-variants optionally takes a
	   layout parameter to limit the output to the variants suitable for the specific layout.

EXIT STATUS
       On success, 0 is returned, a non-zero failure code otherwise.

ENVIRONMENT
       $SYSTEMD_PAGER
	   Pager to use when --no-pager is not given; overrides $PAGER. Setting this to an empty
	   string or the value "cat" is equivalent to passing --no-pager.
