Hi,

I am trying to change the keyboard layout to another language. I can do that through the keyoard wizard, but I am trying to find like an indicator that I can change easily. I am aware of the pet that is mentioned in this post http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=49614 however it does not work anymore.

Subject description: How to use a second keyboard layout (eg Russian)
 

Hi memo,

I think you are trying to switch between two keyboards (eg Cyrillic/Russian and English) quickly, yes?

I do this with a Russian & English keyboard.
Method: Invoke "Puppy Setup" (from the desktop). Using this utility you can configure kbd (eg Cyrillic fonts) etc.

Then click "mouse/kbd".
From here you can set the use of a second keyboard (eg Russian phonetic of typewriter) and how to switch between two keyboards. I invoke the switch using alt+shift. I chose these two keys because that combination is used in some windows installations.

You can also set the num-lock indicator to show which keyboard is active.

However - using uPupBB 19.03 I find this arrangement is NOT preserved between sessions. I don't understand why. It's annoying.

All the best from Australia.

Leslie

I have found a solution in the forum in this link http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=1042344#1042344


good luck and thanks for the developer.

although the icon is now on the tray always, it doesn't save the languages I add when restart, hope someone can help me solving this.


Edit : it is working, but not as soon as the os login, you need to select the word editor and begin to write then you can change it.
