I googled this..

https://www.google.com/search?client=fi ... oad+layout

Since I do not have a spanish keyboard you need to find the names of

1,2,3 for qwerty
group_names = ["1", "2", "3", "4", "5", "6", "7", "8", "9", "0",]

and

#group_names = ["ampersand", "eacute", "quotedbl", "apostrophe", "parenleft", "section", "egrave", "exclam", "ccedilla", "agrave",]

You need to replace these with yours.

If you want to add a keyboard in the system then setxkbmap is your choice.

But set it correct the first time with calamares.
