Ah, I see. That would've been nice to known a year ago. I stopped using Ubuntu for quite a while now though.

What are you using to practice your colemak skills by the way?

Combination of messaging people on Facebook and Typeracer.

 

I'm at about 30 WPM after a few days.

Typeracer is something I did quite a bit a well. If you don't have to read the stories any more you know you're practising enough. smily_headphones1.gif A program I really like is TypeFaster. It forces you to use every key on the keyboard which is mainly relevant for the keys you wouldn't be using all that much in regular sentences. And in case you're really getting bored you can always try The Typing of the Dead.

Not exactly sure how long it took me to get up to 30 WPM, but I'm quite sure it was at least a week. I had the added benefit of having just tried dvorak a week before that which may not have helped either.

Just saying, I have no clue why the Duckys are so popular anymore.  They are pretty expensive and often pad printed...  Just don't get it...

Not as expensive as others, where I live, and laser engraved.

I have an old style Microsoft Digital Media Keyboard 1.0A set.

 

Its the only keyboard I've tried recently, that has been cheap, that has allowed more than 4 simultanious presses at once.

 

I play a game called Step Mania, and need the support of at least 4

We'll convince you to get a Mechanical, something like a Ducky that has unlimited keypresses at one time, even over USB. biggrin.gif

I can touch type Dvorak if I try, just real slow, but I'm getting there! biggrin.gif

The Ducky just arrived. A little hard to touch type since I'm used to the other keyboards, but I can still manage I guess. Will get used to it soon enough.

What sort of speed and how long have you been working on it?

Yeah, depends on the type. I found the blue and the browns are the easiest to touch type on.
