Weird keyboard behavior

I set up my pc with KDE, but changed to XFCE recently and created another user for that. However, I find it difficult to configure my keyboard correctly.
I want to be able to switch my cherry US keyboard between plain US for programming and us_altgr-intl for writing.

localectl gives me:

System Locale: LANG=de_AT.UTF-8
VC Keymap: us
X11 Layout: us
X11 Model: pc104
X11 Variant: altgr-intl
X11 Options: grp:alt_shift_toggle


Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "system-keyboard"
        MatchIsKeyboard "on"
        Option "XkbLayout" "us"
        Option "XkbModel" "pc104"
        Option "XkbVariant" "altgr-intl"
        Option "XkbOptions" "grp:alt_shift_toggle"

And I can switch between these variants with the icon in the system tray.

However, it seems to have no result. I type 'o and get no accented o. Or anything else, no umlauts, cedils, etc…

Same thing if I open another tty.
So, maybe it isn’t DE related at all.

I am on an updated Manjaro with kernel 5.12.

Just found out, that I was using altgr-intl wrong. It actually is working as expected :slight_smile:
