Switching keyboard layouts
 
A while ago I set up accents and special characters on my keyboard layout using the symbols file (discussed here). I've now decided to give dvorak a try, but without completely abandoning qwerty. I'd like to be able to easily switch between my uscustom symbols file and the dvorak one. What is the correct way to do this? I've tried using "setxkbmap dvorak"/"setxkbmap uscustom" which seems to work fine when going to dvorak, but when I try to return to uscustom I lose all my accents (anything involving the mode_switch doesn't work) and my Caps and Ctrl keys go back to their original positions (when uscustom should have them switched). Why is this the case, and how can I switch between the two while still keeping everything in the uscustom symbols file? Thanks in advance.
