Hi! I had a quick question, hopefully painless one for you all. I’m running OpenBSD 6.3. I switch between a mix of desktop (dwm through startx) and terminal. I’m trying to figure out how to install and use an Arabic keyboard layout / encoding with BSD. Specifically, I want to be able to write in Arabic in emacs and in my web browser (for starters).
When I run
kbd -l it doesn’t seem to me like any of those are Arabic keyboard layouts. But I’m not sure if that’s the right approach to be taking. Do I need to install a custom layout? Or is it a matter of finding the right fonts? Anyone have any idea about this, even in general terms about an approach I might take? Thanks!
It seems unlikely that OpenBSD would offer Arabic as one of its predefined keyboard layouts, but I’m wondering whether that means I’ll have to do my own custom mapping using unicode / UTF-8?
