I'd suggest taking look at the Emacs mode. It will only provide the ability to enter APL symbols in Emacs but that's usually acceptable.

It does allow you to avoid messing with X keymaps.

Dear List,

I feel seriously intellectually challenged. I have compiled gnu apl under NetBSD (SVN-1271) and all went fine.

But I'm just not up to configuring the X Window System to support APL input and output. These are the steps I've taken so far:
1. set the locale to en_US. UTF-8 (by setting LC_ALL=en_US. UTF-8).
2. Compile the file trunk/
support-files/old-Keyboard/apl.xkm resulting in a file apl.xkb in the current directory.
3. Try to configure the keyboard. A sample session looks like: (see attached typescript).
4. I have not even attempted to add the APL fonts to a font directory. More fun.

Is there any guide on doing this? ELI5, preferably in words of one syllable or less.

Or should I give up on APL altogether?

With frustrated salutations,

You have zero privacy anyway. Get over it.
