Your KDE is now configured to use the Kashubian (csb) keyboard layout! These simple setup procedures added new functionality to your system, providing you with the Kashubian characters. Now you can author and edit texts in Kashubian!

If you have more than one keyboard layout enabled, you can switch between them by clicking on the flag icon showing in the lower-right corner of your KDE toolbar, or by pressing the CTRL + ALT + K key combo.
