Fix Screwed Up Keyboard Layout on Ubuntu 9.04

Got Gnome desktop installed on TonidoPlug but when trying to vnc to it I realised the keyboard layout is messed up. This is how you fix it:

  1. Kill existing vnc session: vncserver -kill :1 (1 here is the pid)
  2. Edit with: nano /root/.vnc/xstartup
  3. Add this line: export XKL_XMODMAP_DISABLE=1
  4. Restart vncserver
