  2. hit ALT-F2 and type (or copy and paste) the following command:

       gksudo "gedit /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/lts.conf"
  3. Copy and paste the following content:

       [Default] XKBLAYOUT         = "de"
  4. Edit "de" to the keymap setting you want
  5. Save the File
  6. Reboot the clients and enjoy your customized Keymap setting
