Implement a keymap for the Ubuntu 19.04/10 GUI-based keyboard switcher

This project is suitable for developers with significant experience of the Ubuntu desktop, xkb and gnome. In your response, please indicate your previous experience with xkb and the gnone keyboard switcher.

Project details: When I take this xkbd map

partial alphanumeric_keys modifier_keys

xkb_symbols "basic" {

include "us(basic)"

name[Group1]= "enHT (English, US, Hyper-Terminal)";

key <CAPS> { [ Control_L, Control_L ] };

// shift

replace key <LCTL> { [ Super_L ] };

replace key <LWIN> { [ Alt_L, Meta_L ] };

replace key <LALT> { [ Hyper_L, Hyper_L ] };

// space

replace key <RALT> { [ Control_R, Control_R ] };

replace key <RCTL> { [ Hyper_R, Hyper_R ] };

// Modifiers

modifier_map Mod1 { <LWIN> };

modifier_map Mod4 { <LCTL> };

modifier_map Mod5 { <LALT>, <RCTL> };

modifier_map Control { <CAPS>, <RALT> };


and save it to /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/testmap I can then run setxbkmap testmap and get the keys as required.

However, if I edit evdev (/usr/share/X11/xkb/rules) accordingly, and select the map via the GUI, it doesn't work (as an alternative keyboard layout): The GUI claims to have switched to themap, but the keys are unchanged.

It's known that (unfortunately) setxkbmap works slightly differently from the GUI switcher. However, clearly the GUI switcher works for some keyboard maps.

The task is to get the above keyboard map to work in the GUI switcher (as an alternative map to the standard UK keyboard layout).
