Default missing keyboard layout

Any chance for getting Estonian keyboard layout added into OpenBSD? It has got 2 other Baltic languages supported (lt and lv) but those are quite different from mine. I've been using German layout but it's got two serious disadvantages as subsitute layout. Swapped "y/z" and it lacks "õ" special character although it contains 3 others I need (äöü). Thank you.

Will be you using wscons directly or xorg? I think you can remap the keyboard via xorg or possibly pick one of the layouts closest to Eastonian and copy/edit to your needs. If that works the project would likely add the mapping if submitted.

pckbd(4)
Quote:
This driver supports PC/AT keyboards within the wscons(4) console framework. It doesn't provide direct device driver entry points but makes its functions available via the internal wskbd(4) interface.
The pckbd driver supports a number of different key mappings which can be chosen from with the kernel option “PCKBD_LAYOUT” at compile time or with the utility wsconsctl(8) (variable: “keyboard.encoding”) at runtime. Other mappings can be used if the whole keymap is replaced by means of wsconsctl(8). The built-in mappings are at this time:
KB_BE
(be) Belgium French.
KB_BR
(br) Brazilian.
KB_CF
(cf) Canadian French.
KB_DE
(de) German with “dead accents”.
KB_DK
(dk) Danish with “dead accents”.

KB_IS

KB_IT
(it) Italian.
KB_JP
(jp) Japanese.
KB_LA

KB_LT

KB_LV
(lv) Latvian
KB_NL
(nl) Dutch with “dead accents”.

(no) Norwegian with “dead accents”.
KB_PL

wscons usually, not much use for a X

Ok, thanks I'll look into it. German layout is closest, perhaps Finnish running for the second best. Only lack one (KB_DE) and two characters(KB_FI), rest of the layouts are so uncomfortable and alien that it's usually easier to stick using US layout.
