Description Victor Ibragimov 2008-07-17 16:17:37 EDT
Description of problem:

There is an official Tajik Standard Keyboard Layout required by the
TojikStandard Organization to be used in software development. The official
keyboard, due to the added 6 characters, does not support important keys such as
_-+= as they are replaced by special characters “ғ” and “ӯ” on Tajik keyboard.
For the translators in Linux a Tajik keyboard was developed to match the Russian
layout and have all the keys available on the keyboard. This unofficial Tajik
keyboard layout use more than one buttons to get a letter with a special sign
for Tajik language and require two key strokes. The existing Tajik xkb in Fedora
is based on unofficial layout.

To meet the requirements/needs for both official and unofficial, the following
layout has been created to resolve the existing (but permanent) Tajik layout issues.


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Change the existing Tajik xkb (tj)
  

Expected results:

// Standard Tojiki Keyboard Layout, Official Standard

Comment 1 Peter Hutterer 2008-10-08 00:43:30 EDT
Victor, please file this bug upstream under the following URL:
https://bugs.freedesktop.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=xkeyboard-config

Sergey (the upstream maintainer) has a better overview on how to integrate new keyboard layouts.

Once you have filed the bug, please add a reference to the bug in this bugreport so we can track it and integrate it into Fedora when it is merged.
Comment 2 Victor Ibragimov 2008-10-08 10:28:09 EDT
Peter and Sergey,

The bug was filed at: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=17975

Some details for the keyboard layouts added:

Tajik users/typers would like to have an option in Fedora to use/have both
kayboard layouts:

1) Standard Tojiki Keyboard Layout, Official Standard, Required
2)  Tojiki Rusi Keyboard Layout, Unofficial, But most usable
Comment 3 Victor Ibragimov 2008-10-09 09:44:45 EDT
