Dvorak Italian layout keyboard

Postby ylon on Mon Jun 15, 2009 6:45 am

There's a way to use the Italian dvorak keyboard layout with mint? I can see there's the US one.. but it did miss to me the italian one. Can I edit or make a new layout keyboard for my needs? anyway, this is how should looks like the italian layout:

default
shift
alt+gr
capslock

yes, it seems there is no Dvorak Italian. As for creating your own, see http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=138600 Feel free to submit it back once you've created it.

no Dvorak Italian

How come?
There is a Swedish one (if my memory serves me) and Swedish is a smaller language (but the IT penetration - if one can say so - is among the highest on the planet, only South Korea and possibly one or two more countries ahead)

I've done
it_IT.dvorak.tar.gz
(627 Bytes) Downloaded 25 times
by using Keyboard Layout Editor. The file is built over the default italian qwerty keyboard... so keys that weren't in the reference used.. remain the old qwerty.
I consider this just for "testing" and not as final things... due the fact that there's still different Italian Dvorak Keyboard layout!
1: http://idvorak.altervista.org/

2: made by Federico Zenith in Norwegian University of Science and Technology (in gpl3)
for x: http://www.nt.ntnu.no/users/zenith/docs/newit
and for console: http://www.nt.ntnu.no/users/zenith/docs ... -it.map.gz

3: Claudio M. Alessi


The one given by Federico is the, IMHO, best: he'd made the driver for windows, the map for linux (both X and console) and even the svg/png scheme to print and paste the keys on keyboards... plus is all under GPL license! :D

Dvorak did come out directly out from academic interest; italians that get out of italian's university.. did go directly out to foreign countries... and in foreign countries it's hardly to find an italian emigrant interested in italian language (as matter of study, at the last).

As you can see, the best job made with italian dvorak layout is made by federico in a norway university

Temporary solution!


Works only if you'd set regular italian keyboard:

Code: Select all
wget http://www.nt.ntnu.no/users/zenith/docs/newit
sudo mv /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/it /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/it.back
sudo mv newit /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/it

then reboot.

to step back:
Code: Select all
sudo mv /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/it.back /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/it





Optional:
train your dvorak's skills, install
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install dvorak7min

'n run
Code: Select all
dvorak7min

(you'll need just to reach 10 lesson with 70% to have enough skill)


Print this page (resized to match your keyboard keys)

before cut and glue on key the letters paste some scotch tape over.
