I designed a keyboard layout for myself, after I run xmodmap it works OK, but after standby or reboot, the layout turn back to qwerty.
How can I set it as default? My OS is Debian Wheezy with Xfce4.

I use Colemak for English layout and standard Korean layout. If I were to use Qwerty and Korean, it works out of the box. I can switch between layouts by pressing Shift+Space with the default Samsung keyboard.
So I basically followed this thread's instruction to get Colemak to work.
My keyboard (HP bluetooth keyboard), however, does not generate a separate .kl file in the keylayout folder.
When I installed Gnome and Gdm, they shared the same keyboard layouts after I set them (mt, fr(oss)).Than I customised one of the layouts and this layout got temporarily disabled. Logging out re-enabled the layout but gdm added another layout (en). This doesn't bother me much but I have to check every time if the correct keyboard layout is selected.
Two of my computers running Ubuntu randomly ignore the configured keyboard layout and fall back to qwerty.
On one computer the configured layout is "Français" (French), on the other it is a bépo (dvorak-like layout for French). On both computers the layout was selected at installation time in order to make it the default system-wide.
First I had the problem of the keyboard layout resetting itself on each reboot from DE (german) to EN (us). I followed the advice of using dconf in order to make the DE layout my personal default (see Keyboard layout switches to English each time I reboot).
However, after that, my shortcuts didn't work properly anymore. In Firefox, Kile etc.
The keyboard layout icons (lower right corner of this screenshot) from left to right: QWERTY, Thumb (split), Handwriting, and Standard.
There are several articles explaining how to enable the Standard (rightmost) layout, which apparently is disabled by default for many users. For me, that's the only keyboard layout I can access--Both the QWERTY and Thumb keyboards are disabled for me.
The controls in the Binding Of Isaac demo are not configurable, and are set to the standard WASD for movement. I'm using the "English (Dvorak alternative international no dead keys)" keyboard layout by default, but I'm quite happy to change it for a gaming session.
I use Dvorak as my primary keyboard layout. For writing in my native language(Bengali), I'd like to use the Probhat layout. But Probhat assumes that you are using a QWERTY layout. How do I make it understand that I'm using Dvorak so that it matches with the corresponding Dvorak keys?
Clarification: For example, when I press 'E'('D' in QWERTY), the Probhat layout understands it as a 'D'(ড).
Keyboard Layout "German (qwerty)" missing since 12.04 states, that German (qwerty) was removed in favor of German(us). That layout however is not shown in the configuration dialogue. I tried manually configuring /etc/default/keyboard to
