I like to configure my keys my way, so I wrote a keyboard symbols file and I put it in

`/usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/cat`

I use it by running setxkbmap cat -variant dvorak (and it works), but it doesn't show up in the console configuration (dpkg-reconfigure console-setup) nor in the Gnome keyboard settings... nor anywhere else, so I have to run setxkbmap every time.

I suppose that I have to register it somewhere, but where?

Ah, for Gnome to recognize it I had to add it to:

/usr/share/X11/xkb/rules/{base,evdev}.{xml,lst}
