Bépo keyboard layout - «first class citizen»

Feature state

openSUSE-11.4
Unconfirmed

Description

Hi

The usual qwerty  keyboard layout (and similar layouts like qwertz, azerty...) are known for being suboptimal. Better layouts are available, like dvorak. These layouts are often tied to a language : dvorak is better for english, while french users will prefer bépo.

On my system, I only use a bépo keyboard, that is not supported at all in the OpenSUSE installer, making it really painful to use.

It would be a simple but nice addition to have bépo support in Yast. OpenSUSE would then be probably the only distribution providing that feature, and I don't think it costs much to include a new keyboard layout on the CD/DVD.

Thanks

It is even a bit simpler than that : the bépo layout is installed, available using setxkbmap for instance, but not listed in Yast...

I would like to have the ability to choose bépo during install, and I'm sure that a lot of users of alternative keyboard layouts would love to too. I'm not a developer, but I think this shouldn't be too hard to implement in yast.
