Switch layout shortcut directly in xfce4-keyboard-configuration

Hi all,

I find it surprising that you have to install an additional plugin or run setxkbmap to be able to switch keyboard layouts when the xfce4-keyboard-configuration tool already offers a dialog that allows one to add a number of different layouts. Why is it that no option to configure a switch layout shortcut was put there, in its arguably natural place (where both global shortcuts and layouts are defined)?

Best regards

Re: Switch layout shortcut directly in xfce4-keyboard-configuration

Hello everyone I have the same problem witih switch layout:

Linux localhost.localdomain 3.14.2-200.fc20.i686 #1 SMP Mon Apr 28 15:01:48 UTC 2014 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

Xfce4 - 4.10.1-3.fc.20

if I try to change settings in the Application Menu - Settings - Keyboard - Layout or shortcuts - the system is hang out. I couldn't set layout and key combinations to change layouts.

If I touch bar of change keeboard - the system hang out.

And I have another problem. I set LibreOffice in this system. If I want to change type of file during saving it the system is hanging out too.

Besides, I don't use xfce4-xkb-plugin Layout switch. Just try to set keyboard and layout in system options.
