KMFL keyboard for African Latin writing systems

This is a set of two keyboards that provides a single implementation for many Roman writing systems across Africa, based on results compiled from data from Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Chad, Cote d’Ivoire, Nigeria, Senegal and Togo.

The keyboards are written in Keyman keyboard language and developed by SIL Non-Roman Script Initiative NRSI. The software is distributed under the X11-style license http//

This port installs the keyboard so that it can be used through SCIM or IBus KMFL IMEngine textproc/scim-kmfl-imengine, textproc/ibus-kmfl. Two layouts are provided

  • mnemonic layout for any keyboard using deadkeys;
  • positional layout for US keyboard using deadkeys and/or shift-states, i.e. RALT and LALT keys.
