I just installed Xubuntu 11.04 on an old desktop, replacing Ubuntu 10.4.
I then upgraded to Xubuntu 11.10, 12.04, and 12.10 and everything went
fine except that I can no longer find the keyboard setting I used
before, which let me produce a wide selection of useful Unicode
punctuation and utility characters as well as the accented vowels of the
I live in Ireland, and Ubuntu had a setting for English (Ireland) which
is absent from Xubuntu. Is there somewhere this setting can be downloaded?
Some time ago, for reference, I published the exact set of characters
this setting produced at http://silmaril.ie/linux/keyboard.pdf
The default English (UK) setting in Xubuntu hardly produces any of these
characters at all, and is useless if you need to work in other European
languages, or use the publishing symbols it makes available.
(Note that this is NOT the "Irish Unicode Expert" keyboard setting,
which is intended for writing in the Irish language, which I don't need.)
