Thank you qwazix! That is really helpful.
I will try to add the arrows to my local language too.

EDIT: I managed adding the arrow keys to my local language kbd layout quite easily by looking in your xml files, so thanks again!

Thanks qwazix for your VKB layout with arrow keys and idea to have different layouts for landscape and portrait modes!

I played around with the XML files and came up with a little different implementation of mine. See the screenshots and their descriptions below

1. English landscape layout of alphabetic characters with arrow keys and question, exclamation, apostrophe & quotation marks for fast writing of normal conversation without a need to go to the symbol page.

2. English landscape layout of symbol characters on a single page! Some more special characters can be found as "accent" characters by pressing the "base" character long. For example, by pressing long parenthesis "(", you can find brackets "[" and curly brackets "{".

3. Portrait layout is untouched.

4. Similar Finnish layout for Finnish users with "" and "" characters.

Notice also my custom shell toolbar with different landscape and portrait layouts. So arrow keys are provided on the toolbar in portrait mode whereas in landscape mode more special shell characters can be provided on it.

Keys are getting smallish and layout crowded, but that's the price at least I'm willing to pay for a more efficient VKB layout.

The XML files will be available on the next post! (Due to attachment limit.)

Here are the XML files for the keyboard layouts seen in the previous post.

There are following separate VKB layouts packages:
- English with GB spelling
- English with US spelling
- Finnish

Extract the ZIP to "/home/user/.config/meego-keyboard/layouts/" directory.

There is also the custom shell toolbar layout:

Extract the ZIP to "/usr/share/meego-terminal/toolbars/" directory. (Writing to that directory needs root permissions, so use "devel-su".)

Feel free to share and modify the files any way you like!

Quazix already did a great job bringing back the beloved arrow keys. But you puzzled it out very well Kallela!

It's appreciated. Can't wait to implement this.
