OLPC section of the XKB symbol file

To use the XKB US International layout, you may need to edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf:

XkbLayout "us"
XkbVariant "olpc"
partial alphanumeric_keys
xkb_symbols "olpc" {
   name[Group1]= "U.S. English - OLPC International";

   include "us(basic)"

   // OLPC international US English keyboard layout.
   // It's a little different from the usual international layout.
