Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

i've reinstalled slack today, configured it and after that created user account.
i need cyrillic for my everyday work so i configured it under root (and it works... under root). when i log in as user all the changes are present in configuration files (xorg.conf), but i can't see webpages in cyrillic (i talk here only about webpages - i can't check anywhere else). everything looks like the changes haven't been made.
i copied mustdie fonts to /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/TTF
added: "XkbLayout" "us,ru"
"XkbOptions" "grp:alt_shift_toggle, grp_led:scroll" (it had to change language switching to alt+shift, i guess, but it didn't work)
deleted fonts.cache-1 in /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/TTF and /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Type1
and ran /usr/X11R6/bin/fc-cache
P.S. under root everything works perfectly (without including language change)
Firstly, do you have X11-fonts-cyrillic installed? They should be necessary for you.
Check permissions of TTF folder and its contents.
"XkbVariant" ",winkeys" - what's that for? Try commenting them out and check if it helps.
BTW, your language could be changed by issuing setxkbmap lng.
That's a program. When you run it in console, it changes language. Example, & setxkbmap lt - now my language becomes Lithuanian (I can write in it). I asked about xkbvariant because I am not sure whether it doesn't affect xkbotptions work. It may be why alt+shift do not work.
