Switching keyboard layouts

All timestamps are based on your local time of:

On X, you can switch keyboard layouts using the "setxkbmap" command. I created the following two scripts in my ~/bin directory and made them executable:


setxkbmap dvorak


setxbmap us

That way, if I'm using the regular "us" layout, and I type the command "asdf", it will switch me to dvorak. And if I'm in dvorak, and type the "aoeu" command, it will switch me back to us layout.
