Swahili layout now part of xkb

April 2nd, 2010 by donnek Leave a reply »

Thanks to fast work by Sergey Udaltsov, the proposed keyboard layout for Swahili in Arabic script is now in the xkeyboard git tree. This means that at some point in the near future you will not have to edit your xkb files manually, as in the howto. All you will need to do is choose the new Tanzania or Kenya layouts on your keyboard switcher, and you will get the Arabic script layout automatically. Having this available as a default in all GNU/Linux distros should make it a lot esier to get started.
