I'm working with us and de layouts. Is it possible to edit/add some symbols to us layout? I would like to have some German letters on us layout:

  • AltGr+o=ö, AltGr+Shift+o=Ö
  • AltGr+s=ß,
  • AltGr+a=ä, AltGr+Shift+a=Ä
  • ALtGr+u=ü, AltGr+Shift+u=Ü

AltGr is right Alt.

Is it possible to add this letter to us layout like this?

  • OS: Xubuntu 12.04
  • Xfce 4.10

There is Community-driven manual for this:

    Yes. This link helped me to change keyboard layout. But it would be better if we had some GUI for this. – UNIm95 Mar 25 '15 at 9:22
