So I am trying to relearn Colemak and am using Ubuntu 10.04. I go up to System -> Preferences -> Keyboard -> Layout, click Add, find USA Colemak, and add it.

When I try it out in the "Type to test settings" box, it is still in Qwerty, and if I apply it system-wide my system is still using Qwerty. Does anyone else have this problem or have any suggestions?
