Go to the keyboard stuff at KControl. I think its keyboard layout. You need to have at least two keyboard layouts defined there. Then youll have an icon in you systray that ll allow you to change keyboard layouts anytime.

Or you can edit your xorg.conf and add the following in the keyboard settings:
Code:
Option "XkbLayout"  "us,ru"
Option "XkbOptions" "grp:ctrl_shift_toggle"
and use Ctrl+Shift to switch between the 2 languages

I really want to know how to uses the key with the windows logo on the keyboard. And still don't know how. Everytime I push control+shift it switches languages and it gets anoying when using programs that have control shift do something else. So far I saw no program use the windows logo key.
