Following the questions How to use a certain keyboard layout from emacs as Ubuntu keyboard layout and How to add a new keyboard layout to Emacs input methods? I need help for a concrete example - I want to use the Canadian CSA keyboard https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CSA_keyboard (also available on Mac as a layout option) as an input method for emacs on Windows with WSL. The second answer in the second question is insufficient here, since there exists a lot of combination keys which I don't know how to incorporate, for example ¨ following some letter or ^ following some letter.

1 Answer 1


Just set your OS to the keyboard layout you want. No need to mess with Emacs settings.

  • Problem is I don't know how to do it, I need to change it on linux virtual environment. I don't know how to find this aforementioned canadian csa layout there

  • This really isn’t the right place to ask for help with Windows. You could start here: lmgtfy.app/?q=change+windows+keyboard+layout

  • This doesn't have much to do with Windows as Emacs is running on Ubuntu environment, but agreed, I should ask it on Ubuntu forum then
