Unhappy 3 keyboard layouts in xorg.conf doesn't work


3 keyboard layouts in xorg.conf doesn't work


I need three keyboard layouts: us, ru (Russian), ee (Estonian). Well in any way they do not want to work together.
Just "us, ee ", "us, ru " or "ee,ru"


My xorg.conf:

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Keyboard1"
Driver "Keyboard"

Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
Option "XkbLayout" "us,ee,ru"
Option "XkbOptions" "grp:alt_shift_toggle"
EndSection

Three Keyboard Layout "us,il,ru" works for me

I use the following for English, Hebrew, Russian.
Maybe you can modify "/etc/X11/xorg.conf" to work similarly.

Option"XkbLayout" "us,il,ru"
Option"XkbOptions""grp:switch,grp:alt_shift_toggle,grp_led:scroll"
