KTouch - How do I enable a custom keyboard layout?

I'm looking for a touch typing tutor program that will allow me to define and use a custom keyboard layout (e.g. for a keyboard like this http://www.keymouse.com/ which has non-standard physical key positions). I'm impressed that KTouch appears to have this functionality and I've figured out how to define a custom keyboard layout. However, unfortunately I'm unable to find a way to actually use my custom layout during training. I am able to select and use layouts like Dvorak and Colemak which are already defined at a system level by going to "Configure keyboard..." > "Layouts" > "Variant", but I don't see my custom layout available for selection. Would love advice! Thanks!

Did you add your custom keyboard as described in https://docs.kde.org/stable5/en/kdeedu/ ... youts.html?

Yep. I followed all those steps to add my custom keyboard, and I can see my custom keyboard listed in the "Keyboard Layouts" list within the "Course and Keyboard Layout Editor" screen.
