How to Install Languge in DamnSmallLinux (With Dead Keys)?
I have some old laptop that I want to install small linux with hebrew
language keyboard , here is manual how it can be done:
1. First install xfree86.dsl ,
Manual is here:
2. After xfree86 is running , when you try to run setxkbmap an error appear.
Ok, Don't Panic, After I check the forum , I decide to zip the files.
copy from the zip file xf86config-xkb dir to /ramdisk/usr/X11F6/lib/X11/
so you will have /ramdisk/usr/X11F6/lib/X11/xf86config-xkb.
Also in /etc/X11 make dir call xserver and copy SecurityPolicy inside.
So you will have /etc/X11/xserver/SecurityPolicy
My zip file contains the exect path.
3. Edit file /etc/X11/XF86Config-4
find line "XKBLayout" "us" and put also you'er keyboard like "XKBLayout" "us,il"
4. Exit from flushbox & type exit so X server will load again, now run setxkbmap, If there is no errors, go to next step.
5. After checking google , I found a great utill for easy switch keyboard,
It call wmxkb , copy it to any dir U want. (I put it here /home/dsl)
inside there is wmxkb-pix.zip file, extract this file with same dirs it come /usr/share/pixmaps .. and so.
extract the wmxkb file it self , put it in /home/dsl (mybe you will have also to do linux#>wmxkb 777 /home/dsl/wmxkb)
go to /home/dsl/.xinit
before dillio line put this line:
/home/dsl/wmxkb -fwdSwitch 62-8 -backSwitch 62-8 -docked &
this line will load wmxkb before dallio and will let you switch with ALTGR + Left SHIFT.
It work like a charm.
Link to Download ZIP file: http://www.uploadhut.com/upload/17931.zip
(Please upload it to damnsmalllinux site) thanx.
It will be also great to make it .dsl pkg or put it in next release.
