Thread: Add new Keyboard Layout of the same language

    Default Add new Keyboard Layout of the same language

    Hi,

    I have openSuse 11.1 and I was wandering how I could add a new keyboard layout language of a language which is already added.

    e.g.
    I have added greek basic and I want also to have greek polytonic. The problem is that greek polytonic layout has quite many differences from the greek basic layout, so it will be a little bit cumbersome to use all the time polytonic for the more usually used greek texts.

    Thanks in advance

    You can have several layouts in your system. I prefer editing /etc/X11/xorg.conf, for example, here’s my configuration to have English(US)/Russian/Belarusian/Esperanto:

    Code:
    Section "InputDevice"
      Driver       "kbd"
      Identifier   "Keyboard[0]"
      Option       "Protocol" "Standard"
      Option       "XkbLayout" "us,ru,by,epo"
      Option       "XkbModel" "microsoftmult"
      Option       "XkbOptions" "grp:alt_shift_toggle,grp_led:scroll,lv3:win_switch"
      Option       "XkbRules" "xfree86"
      Option       "XkbVariant" "alt-intl,winkeys,winkeys,"
    EndSection
    (you’ll need superuser privileges to edit the file).

    And you can use kkswitch for more convenient handling your layouts.
