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.

These variants are available in both console and Xorg:

  • dvorak, standard dvorak layout
  • dvorak-l, left-handed dvorak layout
  • dvorak-r, right-handed dvorak layout
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.

The following variants are available only in Xorg:

  • dvorak-intl, international layout with dead keys

For international users
