This is a quick blurb for setting or converting your keymaps to dvorak instead of qwerty.

Setting Dvorak Layout

See Keyboard configuration in console or Keyboard configuration in Xorg for configuration details.

For the virtual terminal, dvorak and the regional keyboard are combined into one keymap. But Xorg lists dvorak as varian of your regional keymap.

The us Dvorak keymaps for the virtual terminal are:

  • dvorak, Standard
  • dvorak-l, Left handed Dvorak
  • dvorak-r, Right handed Dvorak
  • dvorak-programmer, Programmer Dvorak

The us Dvorak keymaps for Xorg are:

  • dvorak, Standard
  • dvorak-l, Left Handed Dvorak
  • dvorak-r, Right Handed Dvorak
  • dvp, Programmer Dvorak
  • dvorak-intl, International Dvorak
  • dvorak-classic
  • dvorak-alt-intl
Note: For console, these are standalone keymaps, but for Xorg these are variants of the us layout, you need to pass them to XkbVariant variable. See Keyboard configuration in Xorg#Setting keyboard layout for an explanation.

For international users

Swedish

Swedish people interested in trying dvorak can find the swedish "version", called svorak, at aoeu.info! To convert to svorak in X you do not need to download any additional files from www.aoeu.info.

Spanish

In console, specify dvorak-es instead of dvorak to use the Spanish dvorak variant.

In Xorg, specify es as XkbLayout and dvorak as XkbVariant.

United Kingdom

In console, specify dvorak-ukp (available from dvorak-ukpAUR) instead of dvorak to use the United Kingdom dvorak variant with ISO/IEC 9995-1 punctuation.
