I recently switched from Mac OS to Linux Mint, and I'm loving it thoroughly. The only thing I miss about my Mac is being able to use a custom keyboard layout (written by a linguist and former colleague of mine) which is completely phonetic and makes typing in Yiddish immensely easier than trying it with the normal Hebrew keyboard. So:
a) Are key layouts written in XML even compatible with Linux?
b) If so, in what directory are the files for all the available key layouts located?
c) If it's more than a matter of simply copying the file into said directory to make that layout available, what else do I need to do to be able to use it?
d) If I need to try and translate the original XML key layout file to some other format to be compatible with Linux, what format do Linux key layout files use?
Thanks in advance to anyone who answers any of the above. Please let me know if there's any information you might need to know for the sake of clarification!
