I'm using the Colemak as downloaded from the colemak.com website as opposed to the distro-provided Colemak because I want to tweak a few key locations.
Right now I'm just trying to get the untweaked Colemak layout to work. I put the colemak-1.0/xorg/colemak file in /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/colemak and I try to enable it, but I get errors:
✈ganymede:~$ sudo cp ~/Downloads/colemak-1.0/xorg/colemak /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/colemak ✈ganymede:~$ setxkbmap -v colemak && xset r 66 Warning! Multiple definitions of keyboard layout Using command line, ignoring X server Trying to build keymap using the following components: keycodes: evdev+aliases(qwerty) types: complete compat: complete+ledcaps(group_lock) symbols: pc+colemak+inet(evdev)+capslock(grouplock)+terminate(ctrl_alt_bksp) geometry: pc(pc101) Error loading new keyboard description
I see from the Colemak installation page that the error given is expected:
http://colemak.com/Unix#Linux.2FUnix_in … r_later.29
So, what must I check to find the problem? This is on Kubuntu 10.10, with the PAE 2.6.35 kernel. Thanks.
