    Question Re: language switcher in Lubuntu

    Hi, I tried your solution for my Lubuntu 11.10, but still can't. It says directory not available.

    It's an old thread

    Have you tired what I posted for you previously?

    Hi,

    as I got a lot of requests to implement an autostart feature for
    lxkeymap I did it.
    LXKeymap 0.5 is now capable to store its keymap configuration into a
    file that it reads out during autostart.
    Therefore I wrote a little *.desktop file that I put in the global
    /etc/xdg/autostart which contains the new command "lxkeymap -a" to
    trigger the autostart function of lxkeymap. The Keymap configuration
    will be stored locally in your home directory ( ~/.config/lxkeymap.cfg)
    and is easily editable either by using lxkeymap and set a new keymap or
    by editing it by hand.
    You can get this version from here:
    http://content.wuala.com/contents/le...1_all.deb?dl=1

    If you notice any bugs then report them here: http://launchpad.net/lxkeymap

    Also I guess there is a bug in lxdm, because changing the keyboard
    layout in the session and logging out to lxdm does not restore the
    global keymap but uses the one choosen in the session.
    This could be also fixed by simply calling "lxkeymap -a" from within
    lxdm but as lxkeymap uses only a local configuration it would then
    create and use the root accounts .config/lxkeymap.cfg file. So you need
    to create this first by executing lxkeymap as root if you want to have a
    different keymap globally+lxdm and your user accounts.
    By the way, the above quoted message is not from me, it's by one of Lubuntu's Dev.
