NorwegianDvorak.keylayout for Mac OS X

This keyboard layout provides a Norwegian Dvorak keyboard layout that provides extended Unicode characters and modifier keys similar to the Norwegian QWERTY keyboard layout shipped with OS X.

Beginning with version 10.2 (Jaguar), Mac OS X started supporting the XML-based format for keyboard layouts (.keylayout files) which is provided here, and OS X 10.5 (Leopard) discontinued support for the old Keyboard Suitcase (resource file) keyboard layout format.

Installation

  1. Download NorwegianDvorak.keylayout.
  2. Move the file to /Library/Keyboard Layouts.
  3. Restart the computer.
  4. Open System Preferences, go to Language & Text, then Input Sources, and tick Norwegian Dvorak in the list of input methods.
  5. Check "Show input menu in menu bar" to change keyboard layout from the menu bar.
  6. To use the keyboard layout on the login screen, open System Preferences, go to Accounts, then Login Options and select "Show input menu in login window".

Rearranging the keyboard

Recent Apple keyboards are easy to rearrange: Lift each key from the left corner until it snaps, then slide it carefully to the right to free it from the holding mechanism. You'll need a thin tool to lift this up to attach the key in its new location. Once attached on the right, press until it clicks in. You don't need to move the A and M keys.
