Switch keyboard layout (works only one direction)


Hi,

I'm wondering why I could change the keyboard layout only one direction. Let's say my primary layout is english(USA) and secondary is german. When I use a hotkey to switch from english to german, it's totally fine. But when I push this hotkey again, it doesn't change back from german to english. I have to click the flag on the right hand side to do that. Any ideas? Thank you

Have you checked that there is not a different hot-key to change back? Or is it supposed to be the same one?
Maybe if it IS the same, try setting a different one.

There is only one hot key to switch between keyboard layout. It should work like on windows.

The same thing. Trying to work it out somehow - that's the only thing that prevents me from using kde.
