svdvorak keymap

Is there a console keymap for svdvorak? (In Wheezy)

/usr/share/keymaps/i386/dvorak/ has a bunch of variants but not the Swedish, Norwegian or Danish ones (they are nearly identical, so if I can get a hold of the Norwegian or Danish one, then I can change the few different symbols myself). I have installed console-data and the recommended packages but no luck.

I can get it to work in X with setxkbmap se -variant svdvorak -- is it possible to dump it to a format which can be loaded by loadkeys?

dpkg-reconfigure console-setup


then run

sudo dpkg-reconfigure console-setup

you can
# cat /usr/share/X11/xkb/rules/xorg.lst
for a list of all of the options for each variable listed above

Thank you!

The same thing didn't work on Slack since there is no dpkg-reconfigure, but Slack has the Norwegian one, so I changed to and the crossed O to . I have attached the result. I think they are correct but no warranty et c..

capsesc switches Caps and Escape for vi.

This is based on /usr/share/kbd/keymaps/i386/dvorak/ (I had to rename them to *.txt to upload them but they really are just text files. Rename to .map and, optionally, gzip them.)
