Per-window keyboard layout switching daemon for X

KBDD stands for keyboard daemon. It is a simple keyboard layout switching program, which is designed to run in an X11 session and remember keyboard layouts on a per-window basis. That can be very handy for a user of a non-US keyboard who does not want to jump through layouts back and forth while typing in terminals (mostly in latin) and some kind of chat (in native language). Another useful thing about KBDD is its D-Bus notification support — it can emit signals on layout change, thus, making it possible to create layout indicator widgets in such window managers as awesome, for example.

Users of popular desktop environments such as GNOME or KDE most likely do not need this package, as a similar functionality should be already available within their environment. This package may be of interest, however, for the users of tiling or dynamic window managers such as dwm or awesome.

Package version:0.6-4


This is a shortened version of the original README file supplied
with KBDD's source.
