keyboard layout [fluxbox 0.9*]


I'm using Debian/sid with fluxbox.

When I used Gnome2.8 I put a button on the top bar to switch the keyboard layout (I'm using two layouts).

Under fluxbox I'd like to do the same with some action.

In pratice sometimes I need to switch layout often and without restarting X.

I asked mt google but maybe I didn't look good.

Also I noted that the fluxbox rel notes said fixed multiple keyboard layout.

@ a first glance I didn't find anything on the fluxbox's faq.

Could you help me, please ?

If you need more infos, I'll post.


Heard about setxkbmap but not sure how to do it.

There are some programs around like wmxkb or gkrellm-xkb. But setxkbmap may work the best;
