I customised my keyboard layout in 9.10 by editing the appropriate
/usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/ file. After upgrading to 10.04 I noticed it had overwritten all my modifications, so I recovered the layout and overwrote the symbol file's
Sadly KDE (and, presumably, the entire OS) seems to ignore the files altogether. The help files don't mention anything about modifying layouts anyway (and the layout switcher seems to be using
setxkbmap, which uses the above path according to its
man page), so I'm at a bit of a loss.
Do I need to compile this into some other format somehow or how do I get it to work?
