Created attachment 22256 [details]

Forwarding this bug from a Ubuntu reporter:

[Original Report]
I use three languages in my keyboard, so after physically moving keys to dvorak, It created obvious problem.

I made a fix for it, "dvorak - compatible" layouts for phonetic Russian & Hebrew. Hope It will be useful to somebody.

Attached files ru & il go to /etc/X11/xkb/symbols

Activating them in xorg.conf:

 Option "XkbLayout" "ru,il,il"
 Option "XKbVariant" "phonetic_dvorak,phonetic_dvorak,dvorak"

Comment 4 Sergey V. Udaltsov 2017-01-07 01:39:26 UTC
Now that we have Russian phonetic dvorak - could someone please create nice clean patch for Hebrew Dvorak?
