I recently installed Haiku on my computer and I love it! It is so lightweight and usable at the same time. I can complete most of my everyday computing tasks very easily. However, there are some tasks I have not been able to complete on the Haiku. These include virtualization and having multiple keyboard layouts while being able to switch between them with Shift+Alt. Can somebody please tell me how I can create a virtual machine on Haiku and how I can switch between the English and Greek keyboard layouts using the Shift+Alt shortcut?
This is a good opportunity for you to port your everyday tools to Haiku or to contact the HaikuPorts team and ask for help and also to ask for official port upstream, or to look for replacements / alternatives, or reconsider using them at all.
They also have a wiki explaining the process of writing recipes for packaging your own software, if you know how to compile some code, this isn’t too difficult, the idea is essentially to put the compilation steps into a specific file format, so that the steps can be easily repeated and maintained, and used to generate a package file that can then be installed.
