I would like to have at least one alternative keyboard layout for the Albanian language provided as a distro update or as part of future releases of Ubuntu. Could anyone let me know where or how I could submit a proposal to the developers?

The "official" Albanian layout is somewhat inadequate and highly unpopular among Albanian users. For that reason, I have created and published two alternative layouts that take into account the market in Albanian-speaking countries (dominated by US mechanical keyboards) and user preferences (for a layout similar to the US model).

You may find more information about the layout on Wikipedia ( or on my Albanian-language website ( where you may also download the installation files.

I'm not sure, but I think you may want to submit a bug report against the xkeyboard-config package in Ubuntu together with a patch or merge proposal to the Bazaar branch.

However, xkeyboard-config is an upstream package, and the chances for a patch to be included in Ubuntu increase if you also file a bug + patch to the upstream maintainer.
