Dear Ubuntu community!
I’m writing this post from recently installed Ubuntu 18.04 LTS mini.iso. I have installed MATE DE here.
Let’s start with two polls.
How many keyboard layouts do you have?
- > 3
How do you switch your keyboard layout?
- Alt+Caps Lock
- Super (Win key)
- Caps Lock
- Scroll Lock
Previously I have problems with keyboard layout switching after upgrading from 12.04 LTS to 14.04 LTS and then to 16.04 LTS.
I have posted my vision and problems to the ubuntu-devel-discuss mailing-list in May 2017.
Nowadays I have configured two keyboard layouts (English and Russian) on 18.04 LTS with all updates. Here I set Ctrl+Shift as keyboard layout switcher.
But I unable to use my keyboard layout switching shortcut - it has interference with other shortcuts, which are started from Ctrl+Shift+…: Ctrl+Shift+T, Ctrl+Shift+C and Ctrl+Shift+V in mate-terminal, Ctrl+Shift+arrows in text editors and so on.
But there is no reaction from community and developers.
I sincerely ask you to pay attention to keyboard layout switching problems.
With best regards,
