Hey, does anyone know of an indigenous or otherwise endangered language a keyboard layout has been designed for, but isn’t available on Linux? I would like to learn how to make keyboard layouts, so I’ll do it free of charge.
all of these keyboards require the Keyman program (which is available for Linux) but i'm guessing many do not have native Linux solutions designed yet though
@Siphonay *so what iʼm saying is, porting things from Keyman into Linux might be your best bet if your goal is to create new standalone Linux keyboards for existing layouts
@kibimon I'll take a look, thanks!
What the fuck
@Siphonay Greenlandic? Not sure of the differences between that and the Danish layout. Also, while there is Finnish Northern Saami, there's several other Sami languages that don't have layouts.
Any keyboard that supports it though is going to be OS agnostic with its programming.
@Siphonay oh sorry I read layout there not language, my bad.
@Siphonay There was someone the other day looking for a Lakhota keyboard layout; I'm not sure if that's been solved yet
@Felthry it has, that's actually why I'm asking
