So far I'm finished with the conversion of all keyboard layouts for new
version of KTouch. For 37 of the 42 keyboard layout I was able to convert them
successfully but with the remaining five I ran into various problems:
This file describes the layout of this input device:
http://www.alphagrips.com/. As I have to match every keyboard layout to X11
keyboard layout name to make the keyboard layout auto detection work and X11
doesn't support the iGrip out of the box I don't know how to call that thing.
Mostly an USA qwerty layout with a few Greek characters thrown in. Large
amounts of the greek alphabet is missing, though. Doesn't match any Greek
keyboard layout variant on my system.
The encoding of this file is totally messed up.
Another keyboard layout I can't find a corresponding X11 layout for. It surely
doesn't match any of the Canadian multilingual variants.
This is the standard Tamil keyboard layout (tamil/tamil.keyboard.xml) with
additional labels for the Latin alphabet. As I wasn't successful to actually
produce any Latin character on my system with this keyboard layout I converted
only the pure Tamil keyboard layout file.
It's a bit sad to lose so many keyboard layouts over the conversion process
and any hint to save one of the layouts would be greatly appreciated.
