I'd like to point out the need for other than UK or US keyboard layouts. I personally would need a spanish layout. Will this be available, and if so, when?
Any way to add a virtual keyboard. I have a bluetooth keyboard but no dongle for the pi and the cable that comes with it appears to be just for charging.
Looks like you can use xmodmap (which is already installed as part of x11-xserver-utils) to completely customize your keyboard (as long as you're using X.)
I just used this technique to make the left-shift and arrow keys work a little bit more like my Macbook:
#!/bin/bash # Make the up arrow key act as another left shift xmodmap -e "keycode 111 = Shift_L" # disable autorepeat on new shift key xset -r 111 # Make the left arrow key the new up arrow xmodmap -e "keycode 113 = Up" # Make left control key the new left arrow xmodmap -e "keycode 105 = Left" # enable autorepeat on new left key xset r 105
