Thread: Faroese Keyboard Layout?

  1. #1

    Exclamation Faroese Keyboard Layout?

    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".

    Any ideas??
    Any help is greatly appreciated

    (PS. openSUSE should really implement Faroese into the keyboard layout options)

    Welcome to the forums. Which version are you using? In 11.4 KDE SystemSettings>Input devices>Keyboard layouts, there is a Faroese option.

    it is there, but more hidden than it should be for such a large place

    go Configure Desktop > Hardware > Input Devices > Keyboard > Layouts >
    left click (to check) "Configure Layouts" (mid-window) > left click "Add
    Layout" > in new pop up, spin "Limit selection by language: Any
    language" to "fao", suddenly the Layout will switch from whatever is
    there to something to make you smile

    click "OK" then "Apply"

    hmmmm....then, hmmmmm...i forget how to make that the default for use..

    OH, i guess you just left click on the new "Faroe Islands" line and then
    click the green , up pointing arrow to move it above whatever is there
    now..

    har en god dag! (i know several from your land...nu har vi fantastisk vejr!)
