I finished the port of the Philippines National Keyboard Layout for Linux to Windows much earlier than I hoped! Rejoice Microsoft® Windows users!
Get it now and start typing all the Filipino characters!
The process is simple:
- Download the file PNKL-Windows (available in 7-zip, exe, and zip formats) here
- Extract the file anywhere and go to the “PNKL-Windows” folder
- Install the Baybayin (Alibata) font so your system can display the characters
- Open the “kbdph” folder
- Install one or all of the Latin keyboard layouts:
- QWERTY (Latin): kbdph01l_setup.exe
- Capewell-Dvorak (Latin): kbdph02l_setup.exe
- Capewell-QWERF 2006 (Latin): kbdph03l_setup.exe
- Colemak (Latin): kbdph04l_setup.exe
- Dvorak (Latin): kbdph05l_setup.exe
- Install one or all of the Baybayin keyboard layouts:
- QWERTY (Baybayin): kbdph01b_setup.exe
- Capewell-Dvorak (Baybayin): kbdph02b_setup.exe
- Capewell-QWERF 2006 (Baybayin): kbdph03b_setup.exe
- Colemak (Baybayin): kbdph04b_setup.exe
- Dvorak (Baybayin): kbdph05b_setup.exe
- Windows automatically activates your newly installed keyboard layout. Simply press (Left) Alt+Shift to switch between layouts. You type the ₱eso sign by pressing (RightAlt)/AltGr+p. ñ by (RightAlt)/AltGr+n; Ñ by (RightAlt)/AltGr+N and so on.
The font included in the zip file is a Unicode-only and Website-embed compatible version of Nordenx‘s Baybayin brush font.
