Beaglebone Balck (BBB) Default Keyboard & Time Zone

BBB default values for some items need to be configured depending on location.
For timezone run:
tzselect (and follow the menu choices)

for keyboard layout
sudo nano /etc/default/keyboard (and edit the file eg XKBLAYOUT="fr")
or
sudo dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration (and follow the menu)

this does not work in Jessie, try
apt-get install console-common

or 
sudo apt-get install console-data
sudo dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration

or
sudo apt-get install console-setup

sudo dpkg-reconfigure console-setup
