Sorry, the version should be kbd-1.12-18.

Care to prepare a Korean map?  I don't really know what it should look like and
how to test it.

Searching the Internet seems to suggest a Korean keyboard requires an IME, so it
can't be implemented for the console completely.  Is there an useful subset that
can be implemented for the console?

If the best that can be done on the console is keeping the US layout, #212280
will probably be best fixed by not creating a Korean console layout and changing

Hi Jong Bae KO,
    Could you tell some details about Korean keyboard (106key)?
Comment 4 Jong Bae KO 2007-01-08 23:55:19 EST
Hi All,

I provided the details of How to add Hangul layout in bug 212280.

#setxbmap kr


#vi /etc/X11/xorg.conf
edit this line: Option "XkbLayout" "us"
us ---> kr


set up in gnome-keyboard-properties


edit in /etc/X11/Xmodmap
keycode 109 = Hangul_Hanja
keycode 113 = Hangul

#xmodmap /etc/X11/Xmodmap

All keys are just the same as US-keyboard layout, and Included two extra
keys(Hangul & Hangul_Hanja).

Hi Miloslav,
    Could we add a kr layout that is same with us key layout? just their names
are different. It's ok?
    If we fix bug #212280 without a kr kbd layout, we should modify many
packages (initscripts, rhpl & s-c-k). And if we modify rhpl, maybe it will
impact some other packages. :(

Thanks for the information, I have added a "ko" layout to rawhide kbd-1.12-21.
