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?
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
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.
I'd like to raise that "bug" too, I know the basics about modding keymappings and I also know how to change the locales etc., but in fact we all use localized physical keyboards - especially in Europe - and doesn't matter if it's a AZERTY, QWERTZ, DVORAK or whatever layout, there are lots of language specific keys needed. I contacted support for more keyboard layouts different than GB/UK yet but got the answer it is not planned in the next future especially for Pi-Top V2. That's very disappointing for me and a veritable reason not to buy a Pi-Top (and that's hard, because I really love the idea of a real Pi-driven Notebook).
I'd like to rise a petition for additional keyboard layouts but never did something like that... is anyone else interested and willing to help in that case? I appreciate that very much :)
