Description Eduardas Tamosauskas 2005-07-22 22:17:14 UTC

there is persisting problem with the particular "lt_std" keyboard
layout, that may be not so popular as numeric (main "lt" one),
but still valuable for those, who use it.

Most notable problem with this layout is, that keys "f" and "s caron"
are mutually exchanged. Tested for quite sequence of distros and
computers, this problem still persists and would be good to be finally fixed.
I believe it is best to be reviewed by those, that were
contributing to appropriate branch to include into distributed stuff.
This is most annoying mismapping, but may be not only, too.

Thanks for taking care of it,

Patch to add Lithuanian IBM keyboard

This patch solves the problem. There are two Lithuanian "Standard"s, one from
1992 and other from 2000. The first one is also know as IBM Lithuanian. The
information can be catch at:


And we implement this layout:


The symbols in RED can be generated by R_ALT+key

Ah! One of the differences between the 1992 and 2000 Standard is the F and
S-caron swapped.

Add Lithuanian IBM keyboard to xkeyboard-config.

This is the new lt_ibm patch. With some fixes sent by Edis Tamoshauskas, the
bug "creator". Now it's all OK.

The fixes are:

> +    key <AE01> {[	exclam, 	1,		]
# remove the comma after 1.
>+    key	<AD02> {[	zcaron, 	Zcaron		w,	       
W		]};
# add a comma after Zcaron
> +    key	<AD11> {[	iogonek,	Iogonek 	bracketleft,   
braceleft	]};
# add a comma after Iogonek

And that's all.

The bug is fixed. This is the feedback of the bug reporter:

----From Edis Tamoshauskas mail----------------------------------
So thank you once again, this will be best layout solution for me
in quite some years, and hopefully there will be some awaiting.
Hard to believe, that future distros would be so easy to tune up!

I think the lt_ibm layout can be added in xkeyboard-config now.
