> 2) greek/el.keyboard.xml
> Mostly an USA qwerty layout with a few Greek characters thrown in. Large

> 3) kannada/kn.keyboard.xml
> The encoding of this file is totally messed up.

Is it? I can open it just fine.


> 4) quebec/qc.keyboard.xml
> Another keyboard layout I can't find a corresponding X11 layout for. It

> 5) tamil/ta_eng.keyboard.xml
> 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

> 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.
