I just instealled Ubuntu (Hardy Heron 64-bit) on my laptop yesterday, and I'm very pleased. No driver problems; everything works. And in 64-bit, no less.

I'm in the midst of learning to type on a Dvorak keyboard, and I'd really like to keep it up. The best Dvorak typing tutor out there seems to be Klavaro 1.0.7 (link) (http://linux.softpedia.com/get/Education/Klavaro-2727.shtml), but it doesn't seem to be available for 64-bit.

Is there some way to get this running on my 64-bit system?

I did some reading on 64- vs. 32-bit, and it seems worthwhile to stick with 64-bit. Wave of the future and all that. I'm pretty much a newbie, but I think the extra work involved in 64-bit will be good practice.

If anyone can help me out, either by helping me install Klavaro or suggesting another Dvorak typing tutor, I'd be very grateful. :)

Give TuxTyping or KTouch a go.
