When I use emacs -nw in the terminal, it respects my keyboard map, but when I use the X version, I get a completely different map. I would expect that my X keyboard mapping would be respected as it is in all my other Linux installations.

I'm at a loss as I've never encountered this problem before. It's probably a simple reason, but the usual searches are bringing up nothing. Is there a setting that I have overlooked that needs to be made?



Odd solution. In Manjaro I'd inadvertently set the Japanese keyboard layout. X emacs was respecting that setting, whereas the console version, and all other X apps were perhaps following locale.
