Switching keyboard layouts with ALT-SHIFT

Postby Karsten P. Hoffmann » Mon Sep 06, 2004 7:48 pm

Hi NG,

does anybody know, how I can make Photon able to switch between two keyboard
layouts directly after start up ny the ALT-SHIFT key stroke?

What I found out is, that I can switch between e.g. russian and german
layout, when I select both layouts one after the other in 'phlocale'.
Pressing ALT-SHIFT toggles between both.
If I select another layout (e.g.french) I can toggle between all three.

But how can I achieve this by a simple configuration turing startup?

Another question: is this documented somewhere? We found the ALT-SHIFT
thing by chance :-))



PS: I'm specially interested in switching between US-keyboard and russian
