I'm trying to set up Mirrorboard on my computer running 14.04 LTS. I downloaded the layout file, but have no idea how to set this as my keyboard layout. I have it placed in /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols right now, but I don't even know if that's right. Any ideas?


I figured it out!

I placed the file in /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols. I also renamed the file mb.

Then, I opened a terminal and typed in the following:

cd /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols

Followed by

xkbcomp mb $DISPLAY 2>/dev/null

And I've got it working well.

  • If you want to add it so that you can select it with the normal interfaces, maybe rlog.rgtti.com/2014/05/01/… can help. (It's different, but probably you can adapt it) – Rmano Nov 30 '14 at 20:53
