I have three keyboard layouts that I use, configured to switch with left alt + shift. They work well, but every time I boot, alt + shift doesn't do anything. Clicking on the language indicator on the panel circulates between the first two layouts in the indication, but the layout doesn't actually change. Also, "show current layout" opens an empty window.
A fix I found is the following: open the keyboard preferences and add a fourth layout (e.g. Albanian) and remove it imediately. Alt+shift works and the keyboard layouts are there.
...but it would be nice not to have to do this at each boot!
Thanks a lot for any advice,
P.S. It seems that adding a fourth language causes some service to restart - is it?
