I was wondering if you knew how I could change the keyboard layout from US to UK on the Metaspoitable VM as I can’t seem to find the pipe key on my laptop when I’m on using the Metaspoitable VM.

No, unfortunately it can’t be changed. Metasploitable is just a vulnerable machine, it is not intended for general or day to day use. The pipe character should be in the same key as backslash, just press shift.

Well that’s a dilema as when I press the backslash key on my keyboard in metasploitable I get a greater than symbol. I still get a greater than symbol when I press the shift key as well. Not sure how to get a bar as I tried a whole range of other things including cut and pasting and so on. Do you have any other ideas?
Thanks and regards

By default it has an english layout configuration, so I’ll suggest to serach for the desired character by pressing all the keys, and take notes of what is where.

Lol, funnily enough tried that but still couldn’t track it down, sigh. It’s a mystery!!!

Also try key combinations with shift, ctrl and alt. The character should be there.
