Keyboard Layout not able to switch between added languages in Debian

I'm using Debian (testing).  I always add the Keyboard Layout to the panel, then add English US intl. with dead keys and then switch between them by clicking with the mouse between the two versions of English US.  This allows me to type in either Spanish or English, and I use each frequently.  After the update to Xfce 4.16, I can add the alternate language but cannot switch between them.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks, in advance.

Can you have a look through the list of existing keyboard settings bugs? Is perhaps 112 the same as what you are experiencing? If so, its libklavier-related.

I am doubtful mine is the same bug, since all was well until the last few weeks.  libxklavier is installed, and I just added gxkb and xxkb after reading your post, to no avail.

Re: Keyboard Layout not able to switch between added languages in Debian

I now can report that this problem has resolved itself!  The only thing I did was go into Keyboard Settings in the Keyboard Layout plugin and change the order of the two languages.  Upon doing that, I can switch between the two at will with the mouse on the panel as always.  I do not know what happened, but the issue is resolved for me.  Thanks.
