UK International Keyboard

Some information

Hi! I'm a spanish person.

Some time ago, I bought a keyboard and a laptop in a web store in UK. Obviously they come with UK keyboard layout.

I do not like using a different keyboard layout than the proper of the device, so I searched through the Internet, and I found a custom Windows design that I love.

The image is property of the original developer

As a programmer I spend almost all my time in linux so I decided to port the project to xkb.

How to install

  1. Clone the repository where you want
  2. Open the repo folder
  3. Open a terminal in this folder and run as root
# cat uk-intl-kb >> /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/gb
  1. Open as root /usr/share/X11/xkb/rules/evdev.xml with your favourite text editor
  2. Search layoutList -> layout -> configItem -> gb
  3. Go to its variantList and add
 <variant>
     <configItem>
         <name>intlextd</name>
         <description>English (International, Extended)</description>
     </configItem>
 </variant>
  1. Select "English (International, Extended)" in your keyboard layout
  2. Enjoy
