Description Stas Sergeev 2014-08-12 19:18:14 UTC
Description of problem:
It is very difficult to find the configuration
for layout switching. If I go to "Параметры источника ввода"
via layout switching applet, it says
"В параметрах клавиатуры можно изменить комбинации клавиш для переключения",
but it is not said how to get there, and no any shortcut.
Instead of the above silly hint I would recommend the
shortcut to the keyboard configurator.

It seems the submitter indicates 'gnome-control-center region' command.

Submitter: It would be better to run 'env LANG=en_US.UTF-8 gnome-control-center' not to describe the translated string.

Isn't it better to provide a short-cut
to the settings, instead of a confusing hint?

No, because the shortcut would create a jarring effect, as it's from a sub-dialogue of the main window. If the label was in the main window, this is what we would have done though.

For UI problems, file bugs upstream in the future, please.
