Keyboard layout configuration utility and switcher for LXDE

Post by knedlyk » 11. Sep 2010, 20:54

Salix LXDE version needs layout switcher. Lxde panel has layout plugin but it only uses initially defined keyboard layouts. Unfortunately, LXDE still doesn't have own layout configuration utility.
Here is a few words about this http://forum.lxde.org/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=603 .
From my personal experience with Lxde: I use axkb as a configuration utility and layout switcher. Probably there are other utilities like this... Anyway, I would like to request tool which can configure and switch keyboard layout for Lxde in Salix.

Yes, I tried it long long time ago, and remember that I didn't like it for some reasons. Besides, note that fbxkb is an indicator/switcher only. Have you ever try to configure it ;) ? That is why I found axkb and still use it.
