Switched from KDE to Xfce recently. I use both Russian and English layouts. How to change layout only in an application? Like, I don’t want to change the system layout when chatting with friends while coding (I don’t use Russian in any IDE). So, I want to remember the layout for a specific application. Coding on English → swap to chat (automatically swap on Russian) → swap to IDE again (automatically swap layout on English). This function was in KDE, but I don’t see the same here
Hi. I can’t remember if Xfce layout switcher has the option to save layout for each application. You can try to use some other layout switcher instead (list here). I used gxkb (more nice and modern) and xxkb (light, but old and ugly). I think both of them has that option.
I installed gxkb and it has this feature. But, how did you launched it? Github description tells that I should type gxkb & in a terminal. So, ought I type this every time I launch my computer?
Btw, where can i found how to configure xxkb? I see no description on its page in Sourceforge
Just add it to autostart in Xfce settings.
IIRC it has man page or maybe default config file that you can copy and modify. I did that several years ago, so I’m not sure.
Added to autostart gxkb. Yes, everything is working fine, thank you.
