Dvorak keyboard layout

with 4 comments

Being messing with dvorak keyboard layout for a while. For some reason it seems logical to use it and its very comforting and forgiving to my wrists and especially my right hand ring finger which hurts me a lot the past 2 months. Below there are some interesting links that got me rolling.

and of course %setxkbmap dvorak

I found out that the best practice is to bind a pic in a key combo and use it when you need it. (e.g. in stumpwm i’veĀ  added (define-key *root-map* (kbd "M-a") "exec qiv ~/Images/dvorak.gif") and when i forget a letter i just refresh my memory using the pic of the layout.)
