localectl [OPTIONS...] {COMMAND}

       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.

       The following options are understood:

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

           Prints a short version string and exits.

           Do not pipe output into a pager.

           Don't query the user for authentication for privileged operations.

       -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.

           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:

           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 available locales useful for configuration with set-locale.
           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.

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

           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.
