Switching languages, but keeping the hot keys?
I've recently re-installed Kubuntu 8.04 on my machine which I am using mostly for typing, both in Hebrew and in English. I use both languages in a few applications, and am looking for an easy way to switch between the two without any change to the behavior of the application's hot-keys and the global hot-keys.
For example, I want to switch to typing in Hebrew in oowriter, but keep CTRL+B for bold, CTRL+I for italics, CTRL+S for save, CTRL+SHIFT+D for 'show desktop', etc.
My default system's language is English (by choice) and /etc/environment also has LANG=en_US.utf8 to be on the safe side. Got Hebrew and English layouts, got Hebrew and English languages installed (visible in kcontrol, English first on both cases)
I think I have managed to do what I want in KDE4 but I'm back to KDE3 and want to stay here.
So, can I have the language switching change only the typed text but keep the rest as it was?
Thanks, Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas, Happy Id El Adha,
