    Change keymap from Qwerty to Dvorak in LiveCD

    Hi,

    Is there a simple way (ie without having to edit config files) to change the keyboard setting from Qwerty to Dvorak when booted with LiveCD?

    Thanks

    Hi gdesilva.

    Open 'Keyboard Layout', then press the '+' on the bottom left to add a new keyboard layout. There are several Dvorak layouts available.

    Hope it helps. Let us know how it goes.
    Regards.

    @papibe, Thanks a lot for the quick response and the solution which is what I was after.

    Just for others information, there were 4 listings (English) and I could not add a new one. So I deleted one of the entries and then it let me add English Dvorak.

    Thanks again.


    EDIT: The above issue was found with 13.04 and there were no such issues in 13.10
