I am trying to provide a custom keyboard layout using the techniques outlined here: http://domwatson.codes/2014/11/who-needs-capslock-anyway-part-2.html.
In short, I create a new layout under
/usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/ and then edit
/usr/share/X11/xkb/rules/evdev.xml to include the layout.
When I then go to select a keyboard layout, I expect my new layout to appear in list of layout choices, but it does not.
Is this a bug with the GUI tools that I may be able to work around by manually setting my layout? Or are keyboard layouts implemented differently and these xkb files ignored?
Any help appreciated.
