Hey GermanTux! You are mostly correct, although I don't believe you can do that through Window Manager -> Keyboard
as in there you can only set up Window Manager key combination bindings. But I assume you mean the shortcuts you can set up through the Keyboard
I guess I could set up a keyboard shortcut directly from there, although I surmise it would do much the same thing that the line in the ~/.Xkbmap
does. It is less than optimal for me, as it lights up the 'Scroll Lock' LED, rather than switching a flag icon on the taskbar or something (as the xfce4-xkb-plugin
did before). And another thing is that with the ~/.Xkbmap
file method (given above) the keyboard layout switch is global, i.e. I cannot set it per window, per application, etc.
Nonetheless, if there is not other option, I am quite happy the way it is - meaning it does the job
And hopefully there are others who can find this useful.
Will just await till the XFCE team add this, I guess!
I have grown somewhat comfortable with how things are at the moment and it is not much of an inconvenience, as job still gets done.
