OpenSUSE :: Custom Keyboard Layout Asciitilde Does Not Work

Jul 23, 2011

I have swapped backspace key with ` (grave) key. So I added a layout in the /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/us with the following lines:

key <TLDE> { [ BackSpace, BackSpace, BackSpace, BackSpace ] };
key <BKSP> { [ grave, asciitilde, dead_tilde, asciitilde ] };

Now the backspace and grave work well, but when I press shift + grave (previously backspace key), I get grave, not asciitilde.

This is strange because I tried the same thing (with the same us file) with Chakra linux and it worked without any problem.

Ubuntu :: Creating A Custom Keyboard Layout

Jan 22, 2010

There have been some posts on this forum about custom keyboard layouts, but the latest one was more than three years ago, and is outdated. I found the following code for a custom dvorak international keyboard layout here, but it directs me to copy this code into the folder /etc/X11/xkb/symbols/pc, a folder which does not seem to exist in 9.10 or 9.04.

Code:

As this is the only thing I felt Windows did better than Ubuntu (custom keyboard layouts), I would love to be able to change the layout and finally seal the deal with Ubuntu.

Debian Installation :: Custom Keyboard Layout On Jessie

May 23, 2015

I was using a custom layout for my keyboard as I've a UK laptop but still use french accents sometimes. After the update from Wheezy to Jessie my configs disappeared so I have put them back:

- Defining my layout here: /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/gb
- Adding here: /usr/share/X11/xkb/rules/base.xml and here /usr/share/X11/xkb/rules/evdev.xml in the gb configItem

Code: Select all       <variant>
          <configItem>
            <name>accentsFR</name>
            <description>English (UK with french accents)</description>
          </configItem>
        </variant>

- Adding the declaration of the layout here /usr/share/X11/xkb/rules/base.lst and here /usr/share/X11/xkb/rules/evdev.lst

Code: Select all  accentsFR       gb: English (UK with french accents)

So everything looks alright, if I go to System Tools -> Preferences -> Settings -> Keyboard -> Input Source my layout is well selected and I can even see the correct layout by clicking on the keyboard icon (cf my snapshot)

Here is the snapshot of the keyboard input source settings: [URL]....

General :: Adding A Custom Keyboard Layout In Kubuntu?

Feb 28, 2011

I have written a custom keyboard layout that I'm trying to install in Kubuntu 10.10. This is the layout: [URL]

I have added the layout as /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/dotan and made these changes:

In /usr/share/X11/xkb/rules/base.lst I added this:
! layout
dotan Dotan
Of course, the !layout line was already there, I did not touch it.
In /usr/share/X11/xkb/rules/base.xml I added this:
<layoutList>
<layout>

[Code]....

However, after a reboot I do not see the new layout in KDE's configuration for these things.

Note: this is a repost of a post on the geekhack forums. After posting I realised that LinuxQuestions is the better place to ask this. For reference, here is the original geekhack thread: [URL]

Ubuntu :: Command For Inserting Symbols? OR Custom Keyboard Layout

Feb 24, 2010

Is there a way to set up a custom keyboard layout? (ex: set q to the f key, etc.) I have looked around, but have been unable to find one.

If there isn't one, then a (basically) equivalent solution for me would be to map some of the symbols I need (ex: Δx,Σ,ect.) to ctrl-/,ctrl-., ect. through keyboard shortcuts. The problem I run into here is that I do not know of any commands that paste a specific symbol into the focused text input area. Does anyone know of one?

OpenSUSE Install :: Keyboard Layout Constantly Resets To Another Layout In OSUSE 11.3?

Aug 9, 2010

I have installed opensuse 11.3 a couple of weeks ago in 2 computers and both suffer of the same problem.In my asus laptop, i have a german keyboard. It is correctly recogniced as german keyboard by ev-dev, i guess. (ev-dev managed). But i need to write some spanisch symbols too, like accents (ᠩ ? 񬠷hich in a normal linux, they do work. For some reason, after rebooting, or after some time of having it running, the keyboard layout resets to an invalid setup, here accents get not over the letter (?a ?e ?i ?o ?u), so i have to select my layout again in the gnome control center.

With my other computermore or less the same.Its a desktop PC with an spanisch keyboard. But i thinck i picked German keyboard during installation and now it starts always with german with some sort of 5 secs delay when setting it. I have to pick spanisch and i always delete the german layout, but after some time having it running, it resets to the previusly deleted german layout.

OpenSUSE :: Keyboard Randomly Changes Language And Layout?

Feb 23, 2010

I installed open suse 11.2 yesterday stock Education edition DVD.

I changed the keyboard because it was generating garbage instead of english chars. (everything was stock from the CD)

The replacement kb is a newer one (I favor the old kb's).

eventually the language and layout of the keyboard changes - usually to Arabic or some Eastern alphabet.

I was really starting to like open suse, but if this persists it is unusable.

Something is misbehaving - any Ideas would be appreciated.

I'm running the default desktop env - gnome.

OpenSUSE :: KDE 4.4 And Thinkpad T61 Keyboard Layout - Settings Interfering?

Feb 16, 2010

I recently switched my openSUSE 11.1 install from KDE 3 to KDE 4.4 via the one-click-install from [URL]... I was trying to add a German keyboard layout to the default US layout. But as soon as I enable keyboard layouts (via Configure Desktop-> Language & Regional -> Keyboard Layout -> Enable keyboard layouts), the default layout gets messed up (arrow, pos1, end keys etc. no longer work). I'm running openSUSE 11.1 on a Lenovo Thinkpad T61. Several keyboard layouts worked fine with KDE 3. Could it be that some KDE 3 settings are interfering with the KDE 4 settings?

OpenSUSE :: Faroese Keyboard Layout - Missing The Letters

Jun 3, 2011

I've been using using Ubuntu and Arch with gnome for ages, but after the whole gnome3 and unity hubub, I decided to go with kde and openSUSE. and I'm completely loving it. However, I have one problem Ubuntu (gnome) has the option to choose the Faroese keyboard layout, but in openSUSE with kde, it's not an option. Now I really need to be able to write a lot, so I need the regular Faroese layout, otherwise I'm missing the letter "ð". openSUSE should really implement Faroese into the keyboard layout options

OpenSUSE :: Keyboard Layout Changing Randomly - GNOME In Slovak Language

Jan 30, 2010

I have openSUSE 11.2 with default GNOME desktop and i'm facing issues with keyboard layouts, which are changing randomly. Problem is that i have GNOME in Slovak language and therefore has openSUSE set durring installation my keyboard layout to 'Slovak' but i always change it to 'Slovak QWERTY' which suits me better.
Problem is that randomly system adds back to my layouts which are 'Slovak QWERTY' and 'USA' also original 'Slovak' layout which was previously removed.

I must always manually remove this third layout and it's very frustrating. Many times on fresh system boot it's anyway back and so on and on... Where may lie the problem? Why is GNOME not respecting my settings? In Ubuntu i never have these basic issues. Are there on system boot some specific SUSE triggers which are overwriting my configuration?

OpenSUSE Install :: Update: No Home, Wrong Keyboard Layout, OpenOffice?

Dec 3, 2009

I updated from 11.1 to 11.2. Before some intelligent person says, I should never update but do a new install: a new install isn't better, then I have other problems to tackle. And I really would like updates to work.Well, I have the following problems and I hope you don't mind me listing them all in one post *it's difficult for me to type on this keyboard layout):1. home isn't found or set up. I have modified fstab to mount /dev/sda6, which is home, but it won't mount it at startup, and also not when it's just using the disk/by-id line that had been put in.

2. the keyboard layout is american, while the system language is set to German (I'm German and would like also my keyboard to know that). I had no chance to change that, even a loadkeys de-latin1 doesn't help3. OpenOffice drives me crazy. It just doesn't start properly, or at all. It doesn't open a number of documents, but it doesn't also give any error message. Sometimes soffice.bin is in the list of processes, but OOo is nowhere seen. After killing the process (or terminating it), I can start it, but have only the opening screen and cannot really open a document.4. printing doesn't seem to work, either.Needless to say that everything worked fine before the update
