Description Daniel Stone 2006-02-26 23:52:31 UTC
The attached patch adds a Catalan variant to the default Spanish layout, which substitutes ŀ for lstroke and Ŀ for Lstroke (i.e. puts them on third and fourth level of AC09, where l and L are). lstroke and Lstroke are never used in Spanish or Catalan, apparently, whereas ŀ and Ŀ are used (e.g. in street names, such as Paraŀlel). This patch was requested by the Catalan translation/localisation team.

don't you mind if I change it to 'cat' - just to avoid confusion with Canada ?
Comment 3 Daniel Stone 2006-02-28 00:53:52 UTC
sure, cat is fine.
Comment 4 Jordi Mallach 2006-03-02 03:07:41 UTC
Is there any convention on naming of XKB layout variants? I see that in my 6.9 install, many of them follow country_COUNTRY naming rules, but other seem to use arbitrary names. If a country-like code is prefered, "ct" would be a sensible choice. While it doesn't exist in the ISO, as Catalunya is not an independent nation, it's what some campaigns have been trying to get for some time, for a Catalonia TLD. cat, on the other hand, describes pretty well "Catalan" stuff, as it's the name of the Catalan Cultural TLD (.cat). Either is fine for me as I can't make my mind up too well on this. Your call. :) Thanks for applying this!

(In reply to comment #4) > Is there any convention on naming of XKB layout variants? AFAICT, the convention is layout name is an ISO country code, variant name is free-form. > I see that in my 6.9 install, many of them follow country_COUNTRY naming rules, > but other seem to use arbitrary names. Don't look at 6.9, it's dead. http://webcvs.freedesktop.org/xlibs/xkbdesc/ will let you browse the current tree, or get xkb-data (I think?) out of experimental. All the language_COUNTRY codes (e.g. en_US, ch_FR) are dead.
Comment 6 Jordi Mallach 2006-03-02 03:49:21 UTC
Ok. If it's freeform, let's go with cat, as it doesn't stick to a territory.
Comment 7 Sergey V. Udaltsov 2006-03-02 05:23:40 UTC
So it all in CVS now. Daniel is right, there is no convention on the variant name. We are struggling hard to make even layout names uniform - and I would be crazy to start the war for the uniform variant names.
