    Using layout not in symbols (/usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols).


    There is a layout that I want to be able to use on any computer. If it's not my computer, however, then chances are I don't have the rights to install the layout. See, it is a layout that doesn't exist in symbols by default. On my own computer I have added a file for it in symbols. This is precisely what I cannot do without the rights of a sudo-user.
    So I ask you: Is there anyway for me to just put the layout file in my home directory (for example) and use it from there? Is there any way for me to use a layout that does not (will not) exist in the symbols folder?

    hello and welcome, cosmosn!

    I've no experience in this myself, but perhaps you can control this behavior with the setxkbmap utility?
