We have no choice, but anyway everybody want a classic « QWERTY » keyboard for typing with two thumbs.
An optimised two thumbs typing keyboard would'be better, but people are afraid of.
Very usefull in terminal to copy (ctrl+ins) / paste (shift+ins) / cut (shift+del)
This layout is really bad IMO
é è à ù ç œ are not reachable at all…
It look like those key < > / \ - " ' ~ : did not act as dead key…
So it's really easy to type english and german but no more.
Scrol lock, Break, Pause, Print screen should be elsewhere those key might be usefull but should...
Could'be a really nice feature.
I do not want to see non-english letters labeled because :
- This did not look really nice
- I'll not use all those symbols
- Some letters are misplaced and/or missing (no big deal but, if I have to (re)map them, I don't need them to be labeled)
@_wb _ tab as a modifier but only if we press another key.
Let's say we want to use tab/altGr as a dual-role key.
If you press « Tab » alone, you've got what you expect => tab
if you press « tab » + « key » it will act as a « altGr » + « key »
we may use the same with space/meta or any other...
Why not just put an « alt_L » and « alt_R » and give the choice to the user to turn the « alt_R » to « ISO_Level3_Shift » if needed ?
Many, if not all european keyboard, have « altGr - ISO_Level3_Shift » instead of « alt_R » and we have no difficulty to type, move or resize windows, use...
@comradekingu : red chars are unlabeled.
@_wb_ I did not expect that people remembre all deadkey but just the one they need to,
My layout is not good, but I this give me one big answer about « why many dead key are not availaible on layout proposal »
It look like the keyboard layout editor bug on save…
So here is the ROW DATA of my first try of a proposal with all dead key.
I know there is many thing I can move for a better layout but I didn't have the time to do more than this :
I like this one !
For me, dead key are the best way to satisfying the most.
Someone was talking about shift+AltGr as a combinaison to print another char… if AltGr+a = à ; Shift+AltGR+a must = À not ä or Ä nor å or Å.
Sorry if I misunderstand… my english is rubbish :/
Accented charcters miss me on the pandora, it's annoying for me to type without é è à ç ï ù œ and … « »
Using AltGr+<deadkey> <key> it's possible to print nearly everything (like this keyboard that print all latin enropean char and more : http://bepo.fr/wiki/Touches_mortes )
