Using different Kb layouts between screen and hw?
« on: July 09, 2023, 07:30:35 am »

I'm a fan of neo2 kb layout. So I want to use the neo2 on screen but not on hw keyboard. But if I configure neo2 on screen keyboard it will also used on hw keyboard which i half bad because of missing keys some characters not available on the hw kb like the d and y chars.

Some way it has to be possible.

I have an US Astro with US-keyboard and firmware.

Pre-installed for the virtual keyboard is the Gemini-kb and  I didn't get it to keep the mechanics on US and the virtual keys in german language.

After installing gboard (that's a virtual keyboard from google with thousands of possibilities) it is now possible without any problems to use the mechanical keys us-style when opened or, if closed, to use the gboard with a german layout with the emoticons.

There is a part in the settings where you can choose your keyboard driver for either the virtual and the mechanics (gboard or Astro) and then you can choose whatever you like in the gboard-settings.

Maybe that gives you some idea for your problem?
