In Slacko Puppy 5.4 and Precise Puppy 5.4.2 the icelandic keymap wasn't installed in /lib/keymaps and therefore not available in the Mouse/keyboard wizard. The icelandic keyboard with our nice letters þ, ð, æ, á, í, á, ú, etc., consequently was not readily available.

In Racy Puppy 5.2? the icelandic keymap was available as "is-latin1.map" in the /lib/keymap as all the other keymaps. In the new Slacko and Precise it was missing and all the keymaps where gz-ipped.

My solution was to copy the icelandic keymap from Racy and gz-ipping it and copying the file "is-latin1,gz" to the /lib/keymap in Slacko Puppy 5.4.which I am running at the moment on my Asus Eeepc 2G surf. After running the "Mouse/keyboard wizard" and restarting the Xorg window manager my icelandic keyboard problem is solved.

Probably missing keymaps in other languages can be added to Slacko 5.4 and Precise 5.4.2 with the same method.

Seems rather strange though to leave out keymaps in the newest Puppies.
Any special reason perhaps?

If this is not the right way to add the missing keymaps I would very much like to have comments!
