How to change the keyboard layout in Xubuntu 22.10

Published on 01/14/2023

Every day I use the american keyboard layout to work and the italian one to comunicate.

How can I quickly switch from a layout to the other one in Xubuntu 22.10 ?

Go to Settings > Keyboard menu, add the languages you want to the list. Then you can configure a shortcut to switch quickly between them (look the screenshot below).


How can I understand what my current layout is ?

Using a plugin in the panel. We have to install the xfce4-xkb-plugin and then add it to a panel.
