View Full Version : Dvorak keyboard shortcuts

30th June 2007, 04:24 PM
As a Hebrew, QWERTY, and Dvorak keyboard layout user, I'm especially interested in configuring Linux's keyboard shortcuts so that they will always be the same physical key no matter what keyboard layout and application I'm in. I've looked into this before, and I think that I've seen solutions proposed (at the X level, maybe?), but googling the issue has yet to find a solution for me. Please, what must one configure so that keyboard shortcuts are bound to physical keys, and therefore not dependent upon keyboard layout?

I currently use Fedora Core 7 and KDE, but I'm hoping for an X-level solution that will work in all environments. I distro hop a bit, and I've dabbled in other windows managers. Also, although I use KDE, I use quite a few GTK apps, such as Firebird and Open Office.

Thanks in advance. This has been one of the biggest issues for me since moving from that_other_os over a year ago. I'd like to have it resolved, once and for all. Note that I've cross-posted to linuxquestions.org and devshed in order to solicit opinions there as well as the last time I tried to research the topic I discovered many variations on opinion (none of which helped, however).
