Keyboard settings


I'm Running Debian 3.1 system and using the IceWM window manager. I would like to be able to change my keyboard from english to danish from time to time (not permanently) like you do in windows with ctrl-shift or some thing like that.
How is this possible?

Atleast xorgconfig (the interactive config maker wizard) has an option to define a key combination to change between layouts.. Debian is still stuck with XFree for a year or so in my guess, so you might wana try if XFreeconfig or some similar wizard had that kinda functionality, as I realy dont remember. Ive never used the feature so cant tell you what the actual options are it utilizes, but I bet you can find em with google if you bother looking.. (:
