Description Gatis Spats 2005-07-16 02:32:11 UTC
There is a need to add latvian keyboard layout with aphostrophee 'dead key' as
another alternative to lv (latvian with right-alt) xkb layout

compile log

these files are just a hack. You get needed funcionality overwriting default 

and adding file

no not a nice and compatible sollution. What we need - is to take this layout
and rewrite according to standarts.

we need to test theese before including in xkb. Might be buggy - especially And
lva layout. Have to check it with lv-LV.UTF-8 (wich is default latvian locale
in l10n xorg). And besides - lva layout has less funcionality as rulv layout
(no support for simulantious ru input). So - adapt rulv (from previous binary.
Would be better.

Gatis, it seem the attachments are lost and broken somehow in bugzilla. Could
you please create new patch against xkeyboard-config CVS? Thanks.

I have just got info from my friends that actualy apostrophe layout (with dead
key) now is working in latest Ubuntu distribution out of the box - just by
adding to xorg.conf. If I set layout to lv :

Option "XkbVariant" "apostrophe"

We just need to add this option to these funky GUI keyboard layout switches

It is there in GUI - you just need to expand the tree (if you are using GNOME).
Anyway, in xkeyboard-config it is fixed - all the rest is up to your favorite DE ;)
