Keyboard Layout in Fluxbox

If you have set the keyboard layout system-wide, you do not need to do anything. If, however, you switch between layouts on a regular basis, Fluxbox lets you easily add this functionality to the menu.

Fluxbox Menu

1. Open the Fluxbox menu config file:

nano ~/.fluxbox/menu

2. Add the following section with the layout(s) you want:

[submenu] (Keyboards)
    [exec] (gb) {setxkbmap gb}
    [exec] (fr) {setxkbmap fr}

3. You'll also need to reload the config.
