xkeyboard-config - Man Page

XKB data description files

Description

xkeyboard-config provides the description files for the X Keyboard Extension (XKB) and for libxkbcommon. Typically it is the task of the desktop environment to apply the requested configuration. Users running an X server can also use the setxkbmap(1) tool to apply keyboard configuration at runtime or configure XKB settings in the xorg.conf(5).

XKB Data Files Load Paths

xkeyboard-config provides the XKB data files installed in /usr/share/X11/xkb. User-specific data files may be elsewhere but it depends on the tool whether those files are loaded. For example, the libxkbcommon library will by default load XKB data files from the user's home directory. See the libxkbcommon documentation for details.

The Custom Layout

The "custom" layout is a layout that is listed as available to tools reading the data files but is not actually provided by xkeyboard-config. A user may save a layout specification in the /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/custom file and that layout will be available to most tools interacting with the xkeyboard-config data files. This is primarily aimed at systems running X where additional lookup paths cannot easily be added.

Because the "custom" layout is merely listed as available but not provided by xkeyboard-config, the layout will not be overwritten on updates.
