I need to test something on French AZERTY keyboard layout but I can't find it in xfce4-keyboard-settings app, is it possible to set it? Is it name like something else?


The layout named French (Azerty) was added in 16.10. One way to get it, if you are on 14.04 or 16.04, is to install the xkb-data package from this PPA:


OTOH I think that the basic French layout actually is AZERTY as well.


If only for testing it should be enough to use setxkbmap with the parameter fr for French,

$ setxkbmap fr
$ echo azerty
$ setxkbmap se
$ echo qwerty
