First of all if any similar topic already exists or not for this part of forum, please feel free to redirect me to the correct one, thanks!
Now the problem:
I’m using several different keyboard layouts and one of them is missing the most usable keymap.
Namely: Georgian keyboard is only represented with 2 keymaps: MESS and ergonomic, however both are the least popular and the default one for that language is - Georgian (QWERTY): http://kbdlayout.info/kbdgeoqw
Is there any way to manually add it?
P.S. I’m a total noob in EOS/Arch (previously only had some interaction with Pop_OS and Mint), so please go easy on me : ))
OS: EndeavourOS Linux x86_64
Packages: 896 (pacman)
Shell: bash 5.1.16
DE: Xfce 4.16
WM Theme: Default
Theme: Adwaita-dark [GTK2], Arc-Darker [GTK3]
Icons: Qogir [GTK2/3]
Terminal Font: Source Code Pro 10
Thanks in advance.
Hello and welcome to the the club,
So far a personal map may tranform the existing keymap
If you want to add the default one, do not select a variant. This should normally add it (in the XFCE utility).
In Linux, we use ISO standards. We can list available variants for
ge layout with:
localectl list-x11-keymap-variants ge
which provides this output:
To verify how your system is currently configured, run this in terminal:
Thanks for the replies.
localectl gives me the following:
System Locale: LANG=en_US.UTF-8
VC Keymap: us
X11 Layout: us
and localectl list-x11-keymap-variants ge:
So, no qwerty unfortunately.
If no other solution I’d go with creation of a custom keymap, tho it won’t be easy I suppose.
Found the solution
It appears that if you only select “Georgian” it is indeed the Qwerty one : ))
So, that’s it, all good.
Uh somehow missed that part initially : /
