qgmlwb keyboard layout in various formats

qgmlwb for X (linux)

be sure to set the correct permissions for the installed files as the common layout loader programs do not give obvious error messages. this is the only possible problem i know of

x11

the qgmlwb layout for x11 (x.org) in a single text file that is easy to edit

it works on almost all gnu/linux distributions with an active graphical interface (ubuntu, mint, arch, you name it)
