Sub_title: sets up keyboard model, layout, variant at a time.

keymap-set is now provided as a part of the countrywizard.
No more updates available here. Check the link above.

it has its own user interface, but also can be called from input-wizard, rc.countory or xorgwizard.

      ask keymap with console dialog
   keymap-set --load
       set keymap according to /etc/keymap

Do you have any experience using
yudit text editor. It remaps the keys quite radically
the home page is
I got it to work well after I put arial font inside
the package to display most languages, but
not Japanese or chinese which require special
fonts to be installed to display on screen properly!
