Inclusion of Dvorak keyboard layout...

Postby rousara » Thu Mar 01, 2012 10:44 am

I would like to strongly urge the inclusion of the Dvorak keyboard layout in Live disks. Having to test drive a Distro and not have a comfortable, usable keyboard layout is for some a breaking point. For those who think this is unnecessary, I suggest using a keyboard that you are unfamiliar with and then...

It uses a small footprint and should not require much space. However, the ease of use of the live disk will be phenomenally greater and extremely less frustrating for those who use only that i.e. Dvorak keyboard.

You should be able to set the Dvorak keyboard layout in the LiveCD through:
System Settings -> Region & Language -> Layouts
