latam-dvorak

A Latin American Spanish Dvorak keyboard layout.

Installation on X.Org

I suggest to back up the /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/latam file. For example, in Ubuntu:

sudo cp /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/latam /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/latam.bak

Copy the latam file to the /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols directory, or alternatively append the contents of latam-dvorak into the /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/latam file.

To make the layout available in Ubuntu, edit the /usr/share/X11/xkb/rules/evdev.xml file and add the variant within the latam layout. Look at the example below:

<layout>
  <configItem>
    <name>latam</name>
    
    <shortDescription>es</shortDescription>
    ...
  </configItem>
  <variantList>
    <variant>
      <configItem>
        <name>dvorak</name>
        <description>Spanish (Latin American, Dvorak)</description>
      </configItem>
    </variant>
    ...
  </variantList>
</layout>

In the /usr/share/X11/xkb/rules/evdev.lst file, add the following entry under the ! variant list:

  dvorak          latam: Spanish (Latin American, Dvorak)

Installation on console

Copy dvorak-la.map.gz on the dvorak keymaps directory (Usually /usr/share/keymaps/i386/dvorak/):

 sudo cp dvorak-la.map.gz /usr/share/keymaps/i386/dvorak/

Some distros use /etc/conf.d/keymaps to handle keyboard configuration. Edit it to configure your keyboard.

 keymap="dvorak-la"

Or it is possible to set the keymap just for current session:

 loadkeys dvorak-la
