Set Permanent xkb Map in Xubuntu 18.04


Hello everyone,

Could anybody advise please, how do I keep the xkb map for good in Xubuntu 18.04? What I have in use is only temporary and "session" based so to speak, so after I log off / shut down I have to set it all over again. Any suggestions / pointers would be highly appreciated. Many thanks in advance!

Here is the code I would like to stay permanent even after re-booting / re-starting.

Code:
setxkbmap -layout us,ru -variant ',phonetic_winkeys' -option 'grp:alt_shift_toggle,grp_led:scroll'

You create a file :
Code:
90-keyboard-layout.conf
under
Code:
/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d
Something like this :
Code:
Section "InputClass"
        Identifier  "keyboard"
        MatchIsKeyboard "on"
        MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
        Driver          "evdev"
        Option          "XkbModel"      "evdev"
        Option          "XkbLayout"     "us,ru"
        Option          "XkbVariant"    ",phonetic_winkeys"
        Option          "XkbOptions"    "grp:alt_shift_toggle,grp_led:scroll"
EndSection

Thank you so much for your input. I shall give it a try. However, do I need to identify my driver first? What does "evdev" mean in your code?

evdev is the generic input driver. So most probably, it should work. But you may have to try and adapt according your hardware.
