That didn't work all that nice :-( Tried to
install them next to raster's keyboards, but
they appeared all empty. Then I replaced
rasters keyboard with these, but Enlightenment
segfaulted, had to restart, lost my ssh into
the brick and Enlightment wouldnt get back up
.. ouch .. anyway

The trick is, the files shouldnt
start with comments. I removed the first
4 lines (so it starts with ##KBDCONF-1.0)
and they work like a charm.

Can't really run them side by side with
Raster's, because the keyboard's canvas
sizes are different; apparently, enlightenment
chooses the canvas size of the first keyboard
it finds and sticks to that. I have them
all working now, but raster's keyboards
are swimming in a pool of empty greyness.

Great though - I'll stick to those.
