Description

Hi,

if you do apps -> settings -> lang support it tells you it is missing two language packages (kde). perhaps we should pre-install these.

also, does the flag icon keyboard changer work correctly? (I can't test)

Actually I think the language switcher is not working as expected. You can add a second language, and the keyboard layout switches when clicking on the icon. But the chosen key combination (i.e. Alt-Shift) to switch between languages does not seem to work. (I see this on two VM's.

Checked again on Beta5. You can add a new keyboard layout, but still the key combination for switching doesn't work. (You have to click on the flag icon to switch layouts). Interestingly, the "scroll" keyboard LED does go on when pressing the Alt-Shift key combination, *as if* the keyboard is switching, but it doesn't.

I have a Fedora 17 VM running xfce4, and switching keyboard layouts in that OS works as expected.

I recall that this was an known issue with 12.04. I had the same to some Greek installations I made. There is a workaround for this I think.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

On the latest ISO beta9 I can confirm that the keyboard layout switcher is working as expected. (even without the setxkbmap fix)
