Cool How can I check in script that what layout is set?

How can I check in script that what layout is set?

I want to check it in every second because after sleep it doesnt set back to my custom layout.

I hope that when I use that japanese mozc writing engine than it will leave it.

Best would be to ask in the script that if I push altgr + a then will it be "" or not. So if it will not be than I can just run my custom layout set program.

I was tried to run that on every wake up event, but that wasnt affected on the user environment (aka X). And when I tried to run it on the X host than the X was always frozen. So I want to check it every second...


Thank you!!

Do you set console layout with loadkeys command?

A web search would definitely help.

Ok, I have made it.

# Autobill
# GPLv3

while true; do
VAJON=`xmodmap -pke | grep aacute >/dev/null && echo 1 || echo 0`

if [ $VAJON -eq 0 ]
bill 2>/dev/null

sleep 2; done

If you do know a nicer way, I am interested. This one is a weird solution. But it works!


check, layout, script, set
