Keyboard Layout Handler not showing the right language

Postby omer » Tue Apr 18, 2017 1:26 pm

Hi. I've installed Debian-LXDE, and since there seems to be no way to configure 3rd level chooser key and extra typography characters in LXDE (in KDE and Unity you can select these options in keyboard settings), I've extracted the additional "typo" layout from a Kubuntu installation, placed it in /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols directory, and changed the XKBOPTIONS in /etc/default/keyboard to look like so:

Code: Select all

XKBOPTIONS="grp:alt_shift_toggle,lv3:ralt_switch,misc:typo"

This hack seems to work okay, I can use my layouts as always, switch them with alt-shift and enter special typographic characters by pressing right alt.
The only thing is that the Keyboard Layout Handler in LXpanel always shows that the current layout is called "TYPO" (although when you put a mouse pointer over it there's a pop-up that shows the actual active language (i.e. "English (US)"). I'm able to change input languages by pressing it, but it always shows "TYPO".
Can I do anything to change this behavior? Any help would be much appreciated.
