I want to contribute a patch to this feature request Consider adding Dvorak in the default keyboard layout option list in the greeter in Tails OS so I am thinking how to do it in Debian 8.7 first. I do not understand precisely how you can make such a change in the existing USB Live media.

  • There is an installation code in apt-get which creates the installation on USB. It is using some codes. How can you study those codes which is about the keyboard layout in the greeter?
  • ...

OS current: Debian 8.7
OS target: Tails OS
