I'm using the Dvorak keyboard layout and KDE Plasma desktop on X11.
Some applications are designed around the Qwerty layout. For example many games use ASDW for the movements.
If I switch to the US Qwerty layout, using the KDE settings, some games keep seeing the Dvorak layout so I cannot move around easily.
- What's happening?
- How can I use the Qwerty layouts with those games?
I noticed similar behaviors on other systems too. My friend uses Qwerty on Gnome3 on Wayland. If I switch to the Dvorak layout, I can write in Dvorak, but his browser's control keys still expect Qwerty: I need to press ctrl+qwertyT instead of ctrl+dvorakT to open a new tab.
What's happening there?
