right-click panel>Add to panel>Keyboard indicator

Do you have the locales language you need on the system installed, that is English UK
--by default Linux mint 7 (gloria) installs quite a few language components/translations

i localepurge - Automagically remove unnecessary locale da
i locales - common files for locale support p
--I use localepurge to get rid of extra language compnents that i don't need, such as uk (Ukranian) dictionaries/translations and so on; however this operates outside the normal Debian system management, although I have never had any problems using it, and it frees uop some space, albeit not a great deal
