Ubuntu :: Create And Install A Keyboard Layout From Scratch?

Jun 18, 2010

I was wondering if anyone could provide resources on creating and installing keyboard layouts from scratch. I am a conlanger(I create languages), and I need to be able to map certain unicode characters to certain keys. I could do this via creating a font, however, It would be easier if I could just switch between layouts which is easier than switching between fonts. Especially, when I am using more than one program at once. I'm sorry because I have never used the Ubuntu forums before and I probably posted this in the wrong forum.

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.

Running Ubuntu Lucid Lynx, GNOME 2.3Keyboard Preferences utilityAdding any Spanish language keyboard layout makes my Alt_R not work in ANY layout!

Dec 12, 2010

I have a UK keyboard, so I selected the United Kingdom layout on installation of OpenSUSE 11.3.However, something keeps automatically adding the USA layout, and switching to it ! How can I prevent this annoying and intrusive behaviour ? Deleting the USA layout is not enough, it seems. It just restores it again.

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Install 10.04 - Freezes At Keyboard Layout Selection

May 19, 2010

I'm trying to install Ubuntu 10.24 at a computer running Windows 7. Here are 2 scenearios, with the same result:

If I boot from the Ubuntu CD and try to install it, the wizard is freezed at the keyboard layout selection. I'm able to select my keyboard, but after I press Forward, the button is greyed out and nothing happens.
If I press cancel, I load the Live CD and retry the installation from there, selecting the shortcut "Install Ubuntu 10,04 LTS" from the desktop. Everything goes fine until the keyboard layout selection. Just in case, my keyboard is a USB Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 and it works perfectly fine in Windows 7 and in the Live CD.

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

Ubuntu Installation :: Starting From Scratch - Need To Create New Partition

Jan 13, 2010

I was a Jaunty user and then updated to Karmic. Wireless went from being sporadic in Karmic to non-existent after I tried the wrong fixes. I've changed so many settings and tried so many fixes that I don't know which way is up with the wireless. I'd like to start from scratch. If I install from CD, will it just write over my current ubuntu partition? Will the contents of home stay intact or will everything disappear? Do I have to create a new partition?

Ubuntu :: How To Set The Keyboard Layout

Jun 6, 2011

I installed Ubuntu 11.04.

how to set the keyboard layout.

I keep using the rescue cd because whenever I choose a keyboard layout the system does not seem to keep it like that.

After rebooting it loads another layout and I can't find which keys to type in that unknown layout. So for the moment, my password is 'tt' because I know it will work in both layout.

I have a belgium azerty keyboard. For the moment the upper option in the keyboard layout screen is USA and the lower option is Belgium. Which is weird since I thought that the upper option was of higher priority. But at least it works like that. At least until I reboot I think

PS: the rescue cd has also a keyboard layout problem. I chose belgium and I end up with a usa layout.

Ubuntu :: Keyboard Layout Not In List?

Ubuntu :: Change Around My Keyboard Layout A Bit?

Apr 19, 2010

I'd like to change around my keyboard layout a bit and can't figure out how. I'd really like to swap f1 and f7, f11 and f2, right alt and escape, backspace and caps lock, and a few of the letter keys. Is there any easy way to do this? (It's a confusing story about why I want to swap the f keys) Gnome, if it matters.

my keyboard layout keep changing from windows to windows. When I am using my French keyboard, I set the keyboard to English and it doesn't make the change for all the open windows, despite having selected the "separate layout for each windows" unselected.Plus if I am in firefox with a French layout go to another windows and come back to the firefox windows, the layout is back to GBR.

Ubuntu :: Can't Set Keyboard Layout Options / Fix It?

May 14, 2010

I've got an odd problem with the keyboard layout options.

I use caps as an additional control, as set in Keyboard Preferences > Layout > Options. However, I recently came across an issue where Shift + Space does not send space, so I go into the options to set space at any level to fix it, and while the option appears to have been selected, there is no change in behavior.

Whats going on?

Ubuntu :: How To Use Dvorak Keyboard Layout In 10.04

Jul 24, 2010

I recently decided to try out the Dvorak layout, and manually rearranged my keys today. For those who do not know:
Dvorak is a keyboard layout designed in the 1930's that is designed for comfort and speed. It is reported as being easier to learn than Qwerty, and more comfortable as well. Keep in mind that you can still type in Qwerty after you manually change your keyboard to Dvorak.

First, for those who want a Dvorak keyboard, you don't! You can rearrange the keys on your existing keyboard like I did. To do so, insert the dull end of a fingernail clipper (or other long, thing object) into the area between two keys on your keyboard. Be sure to unplug your keyboard first, or you might end up typing ksiwmvosioiwjefoakjsdfj;ls.xoqw, or worse, triggering a system shortcut.

Be sure to look at a picture of the current Dvorak layout first. Once you have removed the necessary keys, line up the male end of a key with the female end of the location it needs to be. Press down hard! You tap the key in its new location a few times before you proceed. Some of the keys on my keyboard were different. On my keyboard, the F and J keys and their slots were different than the rest of the keyboard. These keys sunk when pressed. To avoid this, I put these keys in upside down, as you can see in the first example.

Once you have placed all of the keys, plug your keyboard back in. Type something. You'll notice that everything is completely normal, except your keyboard looks like the something from Carmen Sandiego: Word Detective. In order to type in Dvorak, you will need to add the Dvorak keyboard layout. Doing so is simple. Go to System>Preferences>Keyboard. Go to the layout tab, and click "Add...".

If you are limited on screen space, or don't want to spend a century scrolling down to the bottom of the list, go to the "By language" tab, select English as the Language, and select USA Dvorak as the layout. If you want, you can disable "Separate layout for each window". Now, click on USA Dvorak and click "Options...". You will want to change Alt/Win behavior to "Meta is mapped to Win keys". Also disable anything under "Key(s) to change layout".

Now, click on "USA" in the notification area and notice that it says "USA2". You should now be able to type in Dvorak. Try typing something! Be amazed at how slow you are. Next, try out a keyboard shortcut. If you have Compiz, some of your shortcuts might not work. For those shortcuts that don't apply to Compiz, try rebinding them in Keyboard Shortcuts. To fix Compiz using Qwerty for shortcuts, press alt F2 and run this command:

Code:
compiz --replace --sm-disable --ignore-desktop-hints
Also, you should change the layout on your login screen next time you login. Don't want to type ekrpat, now do we? Unfortunately, after finishing righting this, I discovered Colemak...

Ubuntu :: Changing Keyboard Layout In CLI ?

Sep 3, 2010

I have an Ubuntu server running on a VM. I'm accessing this system mainly remotely, and usually with a console connection. I export the output of some applications (like Skype, Google Chrome etc.) to my Windows desktop, where I run Xming as my X server. Everything works pretty neat, but... I can't change the keyboard layout, because the applications are running on the remote machine. So is there a way to change the keyboard layout in CLI?

Ubuntu :: Keyboard Layout Switching In 10.04

Sep 19, 2010

A few months ago I upgraded one of my Ubuntu boxes to 10.04.1 and haven't been able to switch keyboard layouts ever since. I have US and Russian Phonetic keyboards and used to be able to switch between them using the keyboard switching panel applet back when I was using Karmic Koala. Now the applet is gone and not even available in the list of applets.

I understand the applet has been removed in the new Ubuntu. But why? And what other means of switching keyboard layouts are available now?

The trouble is that I have never been able to switch layouts without the applet -- none of the keyboard shortcuts I tried under Preferences > Keyboard > Layouts ever worked in any version of Ubuntu. Now I can't even test the Russian layout inside the Layouts tab, i.e. when I select Russian Phonetic and type something in the test box below I keep getting US layout characters.

Ubuntu :: 11.04 Can't Switch Keyboard Layout?

May 9, 2011

I made the mistake to install Ubuntu 11.04 without trying it first from a live usb. After 15 minutes switched to classic theme (Unity seems to netbook oriented and confusing to me). After 2 days I am about to go back to my beloved Ubuntu 10.10.

I added some keyboard layouts and also specified alt+shift as the command to switch between layouts. Unfortunately it is not working!

Ubuntu :: Non-US Keyboard Layout Gets Reset To US After Reboot

Jan 9, 2010

I am using a fresh Ubuntu 9.10 installation with english-only language but with a German keyboard.

So, once booted into my (only) account, I use the Keyboard Preferences app to change my Layout from US to German. Which works. I also remove the US keyboard so that the only layout left is German.

But upon a reboot, not only the US kbd is back in the layouts list, but the kbd also has defaulted back to US, so that I have to open the Kbd Prefs to again remove the US layout to get my German layout active again.

I also tried "Apply System-wide" and even logged in as root to make the same changes, but the system always goes back to US layout after a reboot.

This is also a problem when logging in after a reboot - I want the system to use German layout there, too.

So, how do I change the layout globally so that even at the login page I have my German layout already active?

Ubuntu :: Change Keyboard Layout When One Key Isn't Working?

My R key isn't working anymore. I use Karmic Koala.

The keyboard preferences is set up for different languages, but that's not my problem.

I'd like to make it so when I type the key to the left of 1 (the one that types out ` and ~) that it types R.
