How can I switch keyboard layouts?

In Windows I can quickly change between different keyboard layouts. For example between English, German, and Thai. How is this possible in Debian?

Did you try this ?
How can I switch keyboard layouts on Debian ?
The first 2 hits go into the details:
https://manpages.debian.org/stretch/keyboard-configuration/keyboard.5.en.html
=================
https://wiki.debian.org/Keyboard
[quote]Use your favorite desktop keyboard layout switcher applet. You can also switch the layout from the terminal, e. g.:
Code: Select all
$ setxkbmap de
$ setxkbmap fr
$ setxkbmap us

For spanish it is
Code: Select all
 setxkbmap es

==== edit =======
Also , if I remember correctly this same question has been asked before, one time recently, so I am sure if you browse/search the forum you will find some
discussions on this, ...I don't have time to look for them for you at this moment, maybe later.
