View Full Version : [LXDE] Composite key doesn't work when I use two keyboard layouts

October 6th, 2013, 10:49 AM

I am trying LXDE on Ubuntu 12.04 and I really like it. There is just one annoying thing that I would like to get rid of.

Since I need to use two different keyboard layouts - Italian and Norwegian - I have added the "Keyboard layout switch" applet on the panel and then, via terminal, I have set the two keyboard layouts in this way:

gksu leafpad /etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE/autostart

and then I added this line:

@setxkbmap -option grp:switch,grp:alt_shift_toggle,grp_led:scroll it,no

Everything seemed to work properly, but then I discovered that when I am using the Italian keyboard layout, the "Alt Gr" button doesn't work anymore as a composite key. Since I am using "Alt Gr" pretty often, I would like to find a way to fix this problem.

I am using also "gnome-session-fallback" and "E17", but I am having this problem just on LXDE.
