Canadian french keyboard goes mobile!

By , 2010-12-16 23:17

After nearly a year of being slightly annoyed at my Nexus One’s stock keyboard having only an AZERTY French keyboard as opposed to a  QWERTY one we use in Canada, I finally took matters into my own hands and modded the recently “leaked” Gingerbread keyboard to make the French keyboard QWERTY. Download below.

Après près d’un an avec mon Nexus One et son clavier soit anglais, soit AZERTY, j’en ai eu assez et ai décidé de modifier le clavier Android pour permettre l’entrée du texte français via un clavier QWERTY. Téléchargement disponible ci-dessous.

Mise à jour:  Ce clavier fonctionne toujours sous OS X 10.9 Mavericks. Il se trouve dans la catégorie “Autres” des méthodes de saisie.

Update: This keyboard layout still works with OS X 10.9 Mavericks. You can find it in the “Others” category of keyboard layouts. I have also put it on github.

This used to be on my googlepages page, but apparently that’s going to be shut down, so here it is now.

Download from Github (updated version with  and Ô thanks to joallard)

Download, unzip and stick the two files (cf.icns and cf.keylayout) in /Library/Keyboard Layouts. Then go to System Prefs, International (Language and Text for Snow users), Input Menu and check off “Canadien Francais 0.9”. (You may need to log out and back in before the new layout appears in System Preferences).

I did NOT make this keyboard layout, I found it somewhere on the web but the original site is now gone.

Voici le clavier Canadien francais pour Mac OS X. C’est l’équivalent du clavier “Canadian French” ou Français (Canada) sous Windows. Pour installer, télécharger le fichier .zip depuis github, décompresser, et copier les deux fichiers (cf.icns et cf.keylayout) dans le dossier /Library/Keyboard Layouts.
