Setting two keyboard layout variants


Hi everyone,

I only recently changed to Bodhi Linux (5.0) and I can't figure out how to setup (permanently) two keyboard layouts (english programmer dvorak and russian typewriter) for my profile.

The Enlightenment menu
"""
Menu -> Applications -> System Tools -> System Settings -> Keyboard Layout
"""
only lets me pick one layout, without being able to specify the layout variant, and for current session only.

I also tried executing
"""
setxkbmap -layout "en,ru" -variant "dvp,typewriter"
"""
from shell, but this leads to "Error loading new keyboard description".
(Even """setxkbmap -layout "en" """ leads to the same error.)

I feel I'm missing something completely obvious, but what?

Thank you very much! This functionality is exactly what I have been looking for. Seems a bit odd that such a thing is hard to find in the documentation.

Yes, I answer this question very often. We need to look at Bodhi wiki to make this topic easier to find for our users.

Anyway, I am glad it is working for you now
