Thanks for everybody's help and suggestions.

Maybe I didn't explain clearly enough in my first post, my question
would be "how to touch-type with single hand" rather than "how to type
with single hand". Features like sticky keys I am already using, trouble
being not able to touch-type, thus efficiency is completely lost.

I have googled around and discovered Linux's support for mirrored QWERTY
keyboard layout is still not generally available (e.g. require kernel
patching and recompile, only have reference on using it on console but
few reference on using this on X etc). However right-hand Dvorake
keyboard support is widely available in all operating systems. So I
think I should start practice right hand Dvorake keyboard (I'd be glad
if I also able to type single handed after my left arm recovered) and
I'll use both hands for typing Chinese so I don't have to re-learn
Chinese typing on right-hand keyboard. This shouldn't be a problem
because only 5% of time I type Chinese.

Read all the emails, thought these can help but seems it won't. I still post it because it might interest someone =)
