xfce change keyboard layout
Hello! Currently I use kde, but I want to taste xfce as well. In kde I can easily change the keyboard layout since there is such an option in the control centre -> regional and accessibility->keyboard layout. In xfce there is no such an option. I searched this forum and I found this thread
but it does not say what to do if I want to change the keyboard layout without exiting X. In kde I just click with the mouse on application that changes the layout.

You can follow the suggestion on that link. Once you list multiple layout in xorg.conf, you can either use the XFCE panel plugin (keyboard layout switcher) or you can define a key in xorg.conf to switch it. I prefer the latter method, here's the relevant part of my xorg.conf (I use Alt+Shift to change language):


    Option        "XkbLayout" "us,tr"
    Option        "XKbOptions" "grp:alt_shift_toggle"
