I am using a macbook. I have been using a computer for decades but never learned touched typing in school or after.
I hunt and pick on a QWERTY keyboard at about 20-30 WPM, but recently I decided enough of this. I started learning the DVORAK layout simply because it was clearly more efficient and Mac OSX has the DVORAK-QWERTY option that allows use of the command key for normal cut and paste, etc. and I was able to find some useful online touch typing lesson programs. DVORAK is okay but I have a bent bone from an old break in my right pinky that makes it annoying in certain cases though I got up to 20 WPM so far. Dvorak's placement of punctuation is really annoying. I came across Colemak in my research of dvorak and it intrigued me. I am not far along on dvorak so I thought I would try it. I have not yet switched to colemak though I have downloaded the format. I wanted to be sure I was able to have a good tutorial. I just succeeded in Ktouch on KDE via Fink working but the Settings->Keyboard layouts has no listing for colemak and there is nothing in the default lectures either.
I looked on colemak's site, ktouch/kde, I don't see an answer.
What am I missing ?
