I live in Québec.
To type that "é", I had to open a terminal, and type "setxkbmap ca". To switch back, so I could type the quotes, I had to enter "setxkbmap us" at the command line.
There HAS to be a better way, but I have been searching the User Guide, the Wiki and this Forum for the past hour without any luck.
I have edited my /etc/X11/xorg.conf file to:
Option "XkbLayout" "us ca"
but I'm not sure that is correct.
I have added the layout indicator to the panel, and it displays the current layout as either Can or USA.
But I would ideally like to configure a keyboard shortcut to toggle the two layouts, as I was able to do in the OpenGEU (E17) window manager. Something like ALT-SHIFT-1 for us, and ALT-SHIFT-2 for ca.
