Colemak is my new keymap of choice. Luckily, Gentoo Linux supports it well. Unlike some of the crazy instructions people have posted out [there], you only need to edit 2 files to convert your console and Xorg server. Note, I’m taking the time to write this because I couldn’t find easy instructions out there…
% cat /etc/conf.d/keymaps
Use keymap to specify the default console keymap. There is a complete tree
of keymaps in /usr/share/keymaps to choose from.
% cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/30-keyboard.conf Section "InputClass" Identifier "keyboard-all" Option "XkbVariant" "colemak" EndSection
