---------------------------------
Note there now is a more modern way,but it might not work for everyone:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=6334

---------------------------------
Some people reported, their right ALT-key still does not work with this Dotpup, so they cannot type the @-sign.
Solution: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=37166#37166

---------------------------------
If you want to contribute own layouts to this Dotpup:
Install this tool:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=3447&highlight=xkeycaps

Run it, and choose the layout for your country.
Save it.
Then rename /root/.xmodmap-puppypc to YourCountry-NumberOfKeys , for example russia-105
Now zip it:
gzip /root/russia-105 and attach it as a message.

Hi Mark.

I installed the pup and selected german-105. restarted X.
In console window: ok. All ALT+ key don't work (ex. ALT++=>~;
ALR+<=>| etc.).
In beaver - nothing german..? bug from beaver..?
In abiword - same as in console window. works, but Alt+ keys don't..

PS

Mark, it seems most of this work has already been done for us. I got a tip from the internet to look in SuSE for ready-made xmodmaps. But as I had Ubuntu at hand, I checked that instead and found 58 of them in /usr/share/xmodmap/

I've zipped them and attached them. Wink

Pakt, great, thanks Razz
I'll try to integrate them tomorrow.

Peter, when I experimented with xmodmap some weeks ago, I also had to add entries manually to get ALT working.
This message shows the relevant keys:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=14410#14410

You might try to use the other program I mentioned in the first message.
It has many inbuilt keyboard-layouts.
You could load PC-105-german, and try to get ALT working.
Then save as described and attach it here.

xkeycaps saves as /root/xmodmap-puppypc ,to really use it, you must rename it to german-105-peter and gzip it.
Then copy it to /usr/local/Keyboard-layouts/layouts/ , and you can choose it in my Keyboard-chooser.
The Keyboard-chooser simply extracts the selected layout to /root/.Xmodmap, and runs the command "xmodmap /root/.Xmodmap" then to activate it.

I think if we could get 10-20 Default-Layouts tested by users, we could cover most cases.

Mark, Keyboard-layouts.pup worked fine for me. Nice work!

BTW, you can change the Swedish xmodmap file to "sweden-105"

ok, I'll change that.
It was the map you posted some weeks ago, I did not take this one from xkeycaps.

The swedish map is (beside german-notebook) the only "tested" one, for the others we need feedback.
And people should try the ones from the link you posted.

Peter, you might try the German keyboard layout from the zipped collection I uploaded in a post above.

Nice work, Mark!

I have confirmed that xmodmap.se.gz works the same as sweden-105.

Very Happy

Try running the "chooselocale"-Script from the "Control Panel"-menu.
Choose de_de@euro there.

I can't try at moment, as I compile something, so I can't restart X.

Just tried it - beaver crashes Shocked
There seems to be missing a font.
Or I messed up my system with all the stuff I compiled.
with de_de it starts, but still cannot display (Umlaute).

I think it worked when I had xorg installed, but I am not shure.
Currently I use Kdrive on Puppy 106 (should try 107 somewhen Embarassed )

Mark & Peter, there is a bug in Beaver - it doesn't show national characters correctly. I've posted it as a bug. See http://www.murga.org/%7Epuppy/viewtopic.php?p=28473#28473

If some keys do not work with the layouts of my program, please do what I described here (but this will not help with beaver):

I tested xmodmap.no.gz
Hmm.. I got funny signs... Very Happy

With the attached xmodmap the norwegian BOKML layout works perfectly on my laptop.
-, -, - are OK and the "up", "down" etc. as well as the AltGr keys work.
