Blender with the Programmer's Dvorak keyboard layout: digits don't work

Dear blenderers,

I couldn’t find any information on how I could fix this issue, so I’m asking here.

Basically the problem is that blender doesn’t recognise digits input when using the Programmer’s Dvorak keyboard layout on Gnu/Linux (I haven’t checked on Windows.)

I’m using a netbook, so I can’t test the numpad, but I think it’s related to the special placement of digits in the keyboard layout, which are not only rearranged, but also require the Shift modifier.

I wasn’t sure if it’s a real bug, so didn’t report this issue to the bug tracker yet.

Thanks for your time.

I have the same problem. At the very least, it is a usability bug within blender, if not a bona-fide bug.

I have opened a ticket and will post the answer there if I ever find a solution:
