Read access, probably OK. But the poster said write access was required too.

You can import sv.dvorak.keyboard using the instructions at edu.kde.org/ktouch/kde4/keyboards-layouts.php. I added details to my answer above.

comment Read file into array
Using . /path/to/config is the best approach for setting defaults, but if you need to set lines of a file to an array variable (as your question title suggests), bash 4.0 has new builtin commands called readarray and mapfile.
