====Keyboard Layouts====
==Setting up alternative keyboard layouts==
If [[Scim]] is used it is likely that setting up alternative keyboard isn't required. However, there are some exceptions, notably Arabic.
Some languages require a different keyboard layout to work properly. The default US layout has only a limited number of characters, which is adequate for English but not for languages which have diacritical marks (commonly known as accents). This covers most other languages using Latin characters.
A different keyboard layout can be set as default. If different layouts are going to be used at different times it is easy to set up two (or more) layouts and switch between them.
Note- this method only works for [[Xorg]]
The keyboard layouts are already in Puppy2, [[Puppy3 3]], [[Puppy4 4]] and [[Puppy5Index 5]]. Nothing requires installing
<p>22
==Keyboard LED to show alternative layout==
==Compose key position==
This also can be optional. The "compose" key gives you another way to type special characters, even with a standard keyboard. More details [[http://blog.cyberborean.org/2008/01/06/compose-key-magic here]].

You can just set up a different keyboard layout as your default, but what if you don't want to use the new layout all the time?<br />
Fortunately, it's easy to set up two (or more) layouts so that you can switch quickly and easily between the two.<br />
<i>SORRY</i>, this method only works for Xorg.<br />
The keyboard layouts are already in Puppy 2.17, 3.01 and 4.00. There's nothing you need to install.<br />
