keyboard layouts

some keyboard layouts (on a European (Swedish) 102 keyboard – i.e. with "the extra key, to the left of QWERTY’s "Z")

vocals in the Swedish alphabet:
a o u å   e i y ä ö

consonants in the Swedish alphabet:
b c d f g h j k l m n p q r s t v w x z

(the Swedish alphabet: a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y z å ä ö)

( å = latin a with ring above
  ä = latin a with diaeresis
  ö = latin o with diaeresis )


explanation:    [AltGr = Alt + Ctrl]

SHIFT + key      AltGr + SHIFT + key
             24
             13
        key      AltGr + key

(I’m unsure re "dead keys" on this layout.)


I used the AnOther layout, from 1998 to 2003, on both Linux (using Xmodmap) and WinNT (I’m a little unsure about which product I used, but I think it was the Keyboard Layout Manager).

2003-2008 I experimented with sedvorak, and variants of sedvorak; one was called sedvodia, and used the fact that you could use one character as a dead key, combine it with a second character, and get a third character (e.g. I typed / followed by a to create å).
I used MSKLC (Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator) for that purpose.

At the moment, I’m using Svdvorak (in Ubuntu).
I think I’d prefer sedvorak (used to have it, when on WinXP), but I don’t have the energy to map it at the moment.
