Keyboard Layout in Xfce

If you haven't set the keyboard layout system-wide, you can specify it in Xfce 4 Settings Manager.

Setting Keyboard Layout

1. Open Xfce 4 Settings Manager

Menu => Settings => Settings Manager

2. Click on the Keyboard icon.

3. Switch to the Layout tab.

4. Untick Use system defaults

5. Click the Add button and choose the appropriate keymap from the list.

6. Select the active layout.

Xfce Keyboard Plugin

If you need to switch between different layouts, installing the Xfce panel keyboard plugin might be a more convenient option.

1. Install xfce4-xkb-plugin from SlackBuilds

2. Right-click on the Xfce panel and choose Add new items

3. Select Keyboard and click Add

4. The keyboard plugin should appear in your panel.

Note: Also you can set your keyboard layouts manually, by: setxkbmap -option grp:switch,grp:alt_shift_toggle
