how change keyboard layout in GNU/Linux

To change to US American (English) Keyboard:
setxkbmap -rules xfree86 -model us -layout us

To change it to Japanese:
setxkbmap -rules xfree86 -model jp106 -layout jp

If you are behind a virtual machine in a Japanese computer, remember to first set to English Keyboard layout/input in the host OS.
