Switching to dvorak

Credit goes to parents for putting me on a typewriter at an early age at home.
I’ve a decent speed on a normal keyboard.
Decided to take it further with dvorak after hearing about it in ilugc mailing list.

Recently switched jobs, having a lot to read these days not much developing to do.

Also I needed to find something to keep my broken heart from falling apart.

First try it took 22 minutes to type 129 words compared to a close 2 minutes in qwerty of the same.

Will update my progress after having spent enough time on it.

    In gnome changing the keyboard layout is straight forward, it is available under System > Preferences > Keyboard > USA –Dvorak.

    We could use xmodmap to change the layout from the command line when running Xserver.
    When we are dropped in any one of the non X terminals by pressing Ctrl alt F1,2,3 we can’t use xmodmap , for this loadkeys works for me.
