Switch keyboard layouts

Hello everyone!
I use Russian language for communication with my friends, and i use English language for learning JavaScript.
I switch keyboard layout by system settings. This method required close all soft and reboot kano OS. It is very uncomfortable.
How can I switch keyboard layouts by hot keys like a windows or android?


Hey @Antoto,

I just checked with our engineering team, and the method that you’re using is currently the only way to switch keyboard layouts in Kano OS.

Hi @Antoto

The linux desktop env of the Kano is lxde so you can use they wiki and tools to change almost anything.

To add russian keyboard layout paste this line in the terminal

echo "setxkbmap -option grp:switch,grp:alt_shift_toggle,grp_led:scroll us,ru" >> ~/.bashrc
