    Switch Keyboard Layout With Hotkey?

    In Gnome there was an option for it. I set my right window key to switch between us, colemak, and dvorak (i'm learning them). In XFCE there is no option for that, unless it's hidden, in which case could you help me find it?

    Just so you know, i know about the keyboard switching applet, and that works decently enough (although it displays just 'us' or an american flag for all three types, but at least it works). I'm just looking for a way to set up a hotkey cuz i likes it that

    Also jsyk, I found
    http://goodies.xfce.org/projects/pan...ce4-xkb-plugin
    and
    http://www.meduna.org/sw_xkbsel_en.html
    either of which might solve my problem, but i'm having trouble setting up either of them, so i thought i would just come ask for help first. couldn't find my answer in any other threads.

    Thanks in advance!

    Install the xfce4-xkb-plugin package using e.g.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install xfce4-xkb-plugin
    Then add it to your panel and use its properties to configure a keyboard shortcut for switching layouts.
