Bug Description

I would like to have at least one alternative keyboard layout for the Albanian language provided as a distro update or as part of future releases of Linux distros.

The "official" Albanian layout is somewhat inadequate and highly unpopular among Albanian users. For that reason, I have created and published two alternative layouts that take into account the market in Albanian-speaking countries (dominated by US mechanical keyboards) and user preferences (for a layout similar to the US model).

You may find more information about the layout on Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albanian_keyboard_layout#Plisi) or on my Albanian-language website (http://www.plisi.al/softwer/tastiera-plisi-d) where you may also download the installation files.

Thank you,
GM

I see the importance level on this item has been changed to "Wishlist." While I do not challenge that classification, I would like to emphasize that an alternative keyboard layout for Albanian is on the wishlist of many users. I think there is a near absolute consensus that a QWERTY layout based on the US model would be undoubtedly better and more popular than the official QWERTZ standard.

The Plisi D1 and Plisi D2 layouts have been consolidated into a single Plisi layout. Plisi.al has also moved to Plisi.org. See http://plisi.org/tastiera for more.
