The Colemak DH Ortholinear keyboard layout

Installation Instructions


  1. Go to "Settings → Keyboard"
  2. Under "Input Sources", click the + to add a new input source
  3. Choose "English (United States)", then pick "English (Colemak-DH Ortho)" as the variant

For GDM you might also need to rungsettings set org.gnome.libgnomekbd.keyboard layouts '["colemak_dh_ortho","us"]' for it to pick up the layout, but I'm not entirely sure.

For the console:

localectl set-keymap colemak_dh_ortho

For the LUKS unlocker you need to take these steps:

  1. Make sure /etc/vconsole.conf contains KEYMAP=colemak_dh_ortho
  2. Run rpm-ostree kargs --append vconsole.keymap=colemak_dh_ortho and rpm-ostree initramfs --enable
  3. Reboot
