    Cool So irritating : Language Layout Switching Shortcut Has To be set after each Reboot

    I have English USA and Arabic Layouts for my keyboard languages . I usually Set Caps Lock to be the shortcut to switch between them . the problem is everytime I reboot the machine or log out the short cut is deactivated somehow and I have to disable and enable CAPS as my choice in they keyboard preferences menu ....

    I didn't have this problem in gutsy . I use Hardy heron now and this is almost the only bug irritating me about .. A little help may make my ubuntu experience perfect

    Thx in advance

    Re: So irritating : Language Layout Switching Shortcut Has To be set after each Reboo

    Hi

    I solved that problem (EN-FR) in System > Preferences > Keyboard > Layouts >

    I chose both languages

    Then clicked Layout Options

    and, in Layout Switching

    chose the key combination of my choice (You would choose Caps Lock key changes layout).

    Closed everything and was done. I also have SCIM on board.

    Hope this helps.

    yeah I do Exactly that ZabiGG but the problem is I have to redo all these steps everytime I reboot the machine or logout .. It keeps restoring itself to the defaults .. ( with no switching )
