Instalation of additional keyboard

Hi,
I wonder if it is possible to install on Pocketbook e-reader an additional keyboard?
I use Greek keyboard, but it is not possible to write letters with accent.

Thanks!

The places to look into should be /ext1/system/language/keyboard and /ext1/system/config/global.cfg (look for kbdlayout). Possibly you'd have to create your keyboard variation including accented chars as shifted ones, give to it a custom prefix, and name it as kbdlayout in global.cfg. Haven't tried it...
That for system things like searches. For other applications, like dictionaries, it may be different. .dic for example may include their own keyboards.

Another place to look into, is /ebrmain/language/keyboard/. The format of keyboard files there is different than that of /ext1/system/language/keyboard/*.extkbd, which is used when is not clear to me.

It seems quite complicated to me.
Nevertheless, thank you very much for your message.
