XKB Map – GB Dvorak with other magic :Þ

After the upgrade to xorg1.5, my beloved keyboard map was once again rewritten, luckily I could salvage it from emacs’ backup files, but in the future I may not be so lucky, so thought I’d post here.

Keymap is fairly standard dvorak, with a few changes
– @ and ” placed in the ‘american’ places – I learnt with them there, so it’s strange to have ” on the 2 key now.
– added umlauts dead key and Eszett: ü ß…
– added thorn þ and mu µ for fun


partial alphanumeric_keys
xkb_symbols "dvorak" {
include "us(dvorak-intl)"

name[Group1]="United Kingdom - Dvorak";

key { [ numbersign, asciitilde ] };
key { [ 2, at, twosuperior, NoSymbol ] };
key { [ 3, sterling, threesuperior, NoSymbol ] };
key { [ backslash, bar ] };
key { [ apostrophe, quotedbl, dead_diaeresis, NoSymbol ] };
key { [ comma, less, acute, NoSymbol] };
key { [ period, more, grave, NoSymbol] };
key { [ s, S, ssharp, NoSymbol] };
key { [ t, T, thorn, THORN] };
key { [ m, M, mu, NoSymbol ] };
};
