= About This is a modified version of the English Dvorak layout that allows you to type all Icelandic letters under X. It's not a full attempt at nationalizing the layout as e.g. the Norwegian, Swedish and French layouts which modify the primary keys of the basic Dvorak layout extensively. Rather it's a simple modification of 5 keys of the US Dvorak layout, it adds Germanic/Icelandic style quotation marks („“), eth (ðÐ), ae (æÆ), endash and emdash (–—) and thorn (þÞ). These keys aren't used in the US version making this IS version a superset of it. Maybe someone else will make a "full" attempt at an Icelandic layout but I was mostly interested in continuing to type English comfortably as a primary function while being able to type the full Icelandic alphabet as a secondary function. = Inclusion in Xorg I already have a `mac' variant I wrote included in Xorg, but I've been hesitant to submit a patch for the Dvorak layout for the aforementioned reasons of it not being a full attempt like the rest of the layouts currently included are. But maybe inclusion would be more useful than not, maybe under a different namespace than is/dvorak. = Directory layout `dvorak' is the old XFree86 layout where national variants were still part of the main dvorak layout, `dvorak.patch' is a patch to the last XFree86 version of the official `dvorak' I used. `is' is the new Xorg layout where dvorak is a variant of the national layout, `is.patch' is a patch to the last Xorg version of the official `is' I used. = Installation on Xorg: $ locate symbols/is /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/is sudo cp xorg-icelandic-dvorak/is /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/is setxkbmap -layout is -variant dvorak
