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

To convert to dvorak on the console, type

loadkeys dvorak/dvorak

To make this change permanent, set


in /etc/rc.conf.

To convert to dvorak in X, type

setxkbmap dvorak

To make this change permanent, set

Option "XkbLayout" "dvorak"

in the keyboard "InputDevice" section of /etc/X11/XF86Config or /etc/X11/xorg.conf.

Swedish people interested in trying dvorak can find the swedish "version", called svorak, at www.aoeu.info!
