comment how to bind AltGr to <Ctrl> + <Alt>
I am not asking for personal use, I need to ship the layout. Unfortunately this is a bad answer. Thankyou however.

I have tried that, xkb fails to load with a not so descriptive error. I don't have the error handy, but I can attach it later.

Thankyou, that is very informative but it talks about everything else except xkb configuration.

comment Programmatic way to install xkb keyboard layout
Not sure I'll be able to get it working with what you provided. I am not a C/C++ programmer and new to make and deb packaging. If you have any step by step instructions for creating debs for keyboard layouts, that will be much more helpful. But you dug through to help me out so you get the points and thanks.

If you have any documentation on how to package with Puppet, that would help too. Google results for puppet deb do not list anything for actually packaging an application into a deb.

comment Programmatic way to install xkb keyboard layout
Thanks for the reply, I am basically lost. I think you showed me a way to enable an already installed keyboard layout. I think I will still have to edit existing \usr\share\X11\xkb\symbols\in file based on what you suggested above. I was trying to avoid this. User might have root access since this is most likely used on a private computer. I would love to distribute a .deb if only I knew how to create one. I might be able to find documentation on Deb packaging, but do you have anything specific to Creating a deb for a keyboard layout ?

Thanks for reply and sorry about the confusion. I want to distribute the layout I developed, so I need a way for the enduser to install that in his computer. Then he can switch back and forth between English and Telugu at will using the Gnome and KDE language applets.

Ok, I guess you are hinting at creating a shell script and making that available to the user to run to complete the install. Unfortunately my exposure to xkbcomp and xmodmap is very limited. Would you happen to have any examples ? if not could you please elaborate on that.

"they're generally added into the upstream XKB-config files and picked up by the packagers." Could you please expand on that and how does one go about adding them to upstream config files.

comment Programmatic way to install xkb keyboard layout
Well, this is not for a professional environment, so puppet probably is too technical and I don't have access to end user's PCs. I am merely looking for a double click installation or a import in some Keyboard layout importer application. How do they normally do it. There's gotta be a way seeing how many fonts are out there, no ?
