How to change KDE default Ctrl+Alt+K for changing language into Alt+Shift
The default KDE configuration creates a lot of problems, when jumping from en_us to serbian_cyrillic...
I tried to solve this problem but i failed...
I used xev,xmodmap...
Does someone have time to check this?

Go to kcontrol, you can change any short cut key there.
You have KDE default config cause problems, what kind of problems are they

when i change language to serbian_cyrillic then shortcut Ctrl+Alt+K isn't working anymore.

If i want to change shortcut from kcontrol i must use combination Alt+Shift+something

Can i change it to Alt+Shift only?

Sorry, No
But you can change it to Alt+F1 -> Alt+F9

You can change this from your xorg.conf. At the "keyboard" section add (or edit, if they exist) the following options:

Option "XkbLayout"  "us,sr"
Option "XkbOptions" "grp:alt_shift_toggle"

I think "sr" is the identifier for serbian. If it's not then change it accordingly.

when i've posted here last time i didn't actually
try bathory's answer.
it's not working...
after editing xorg.conf the only thing that has changed ->
when i press Alt+Shift it's not asking for some other key anymore. I got something like this string into the field for changing shortcut

ISO Prev_Group

Did you disable the kxkb? It's the kde application you use to change languages by clicking the appropriate flag icon on the bottom right.

i did this ->

i've changed /root/.kde/.../kxkbrc

USE=true into USE=false

after logging off (or after restart) nothing has changed

Did i disable kxkb? If not, what do i need to do?

Since I don't use KDE, I did a little search and found this.:

It seems that kxkb (the "International Keyboard" KDE application that docks into the panel) overrides the xmodmap changes. So the best is to simply disable kxkb (there is a checkbox in its control module). Or run xmodmap ~/.Xmodmap from a terminal before use, but every keymap-switching in kxkb will lose this.
Hope that helps
