Ok, some of you may have heard of the Dvorak keyboard. You can have it on your Eee PC to by switching the keyboard layout.
Thanks to iank at his webpage http://iank.org/eeepc/ I am able to tell you how to do it.
In Easy Mode, open a terminal (ctrl+alt+t) and type:
This would be a pain in the butt to do this every time you boot-up your Eee PC so lets change that. To make the change permenant, create the file /etc/X11/Xsession.d/80dvorak:
open a terminal (ctrl+alt+t) and type:
sudo kwrite /etc/X11/Xsession.d/80dvorak
# hack to switch to dvorak on kdm startup setxkbmap dvorak # uncomment the following to bind capslock to backspace #xmodmap -e 'clear lock' #xmodmap -e 'keycode 66 = BackSpace'
Save the file and restart you system. Now to make the keyboard to look like the new layout you can move the keys or use keyboard label stickers. I would suggest the stickers and they can be gotten on E-bay or you could go to http://www.4keyboard.com
Here is what the layout looks like:
You can also set right-handed and left-handed Dvorak layouts:
setxkbmap us dvorak-r
setxkbmap us dvorak-l
