kde: change keyboard layout


In kde contron-center in "Regional and Accessibility-->Country/Region and Language" i have added "English, German and Greek", but how do i change the keyboard layout? I had a look in "Regional and Accessibility--> Keyboard Layout", but there is nothing to "add", in the "Layout" tab.
What can i do?

By change do you mean "reassign individual keys" or
"switch between predefined layouts"? In the latter case
... there should be a little flag on the right-hand side of
your KDE bar ... that should allow you to switch easily.


Cheers,
Tink

No, I think nocturna_gr means that there are no entries in the layouts list that can be added.
I have the same problem in KDE 3.2. Maybe it's a bug.
I solved that problem by modifying xorg.conf file.
Code:
    Option "XkbRules"    "xorg"
    Option "XkbModel"    "pc105"
    Option "XkbLayout"   "si,sr"
    Option "XkbOptions"  "grp:alt_shift_toggle,grp_led:scroll"

"Not now, John!" is right. The problem is that there are no entries in the layouts list that can be added. However changing Xkb in xorg.conf didn't fix the problem.
