Unable to switch keyboard layout in Cinnamon
Last modified: 2013-07-18 18:01:08 EDT
Description of problem:
I need to use us and ru keyboard layouts. Tried to configure group switch in gnome-settings and setxkbmap command line - both methods do not work in cinnamon, other desktops are ok.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. In GNOME, go to Settings, Keyboard, add Russian layout, in Shortcuts tab go to Typing, and for "modifiers-only switch to next source" select Ctrl+Shift
2. Try to change groups by pressing ctrl+shift in any text input field
3. Switch from GNOME to Cinnamon
Switch has no effect
Selected layout switch should work in cinnamon too
Tried following terminal command:
setxkbmap -layout us,ru -variant ,winkeys -option grp:ctrl_shift_toggle
It has no effect in cinnamot too but works in other DE.
