For anybody else using Dvorak in Syllable who has found [ and ] generate weird characters (or none at all), the reason seems to be that the entries for those scancodes are incorrect in the Dvorak.map template.

I made a patch to fix this, but code formatting seems disabled on the forums for now, so for the sake of sanity i put it on my webshare: http://foxmoxie.org/~doneill/dvorak.patch

Once you've made the changes in the original Dvorak.map here (from the Syllable source), rebuild the keymap with something like: [code]keymapconv Dvorak.map Dvorak[/code] and then copy [b]Dvorak[/b] to [b]/system/keymaps/[/b].

Thanks very much for that patch! It looks good and I'll check it into CVS. Does the same issue apply to the Dvorak-left-hand and Dvorak-right-hand maps?

Hmm, I'm not sure, I don't know them unfortunately...

Good question though... (wanders off to check the .map files)

...(wanders back to browser)

Both left and right-handed layouts look good. (If you're curious, they are almost completely different layouts than Dvorak or each other for that matter!) I compared the scancodes to Dvorak.map and used http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dvorak_Simplified_Keyboard#One-handed_versions as my reference.

Though like I said, I don't know these layouts/don't use them, so I can't vouch for the rest of their accuracy (and really until somebody mentions it, it really is a moot issue I think).

Thanks, good research. I checked it into CVS.
