3 keyboard layouts

need to add 3 keyboard layouts.
I have Microsofr Windows and 3 keyboard layouts at work, I'm used to 3 layouts.
But in Debian Linux 9 i have only 2 layouts!

the file /etc/default/keyboard :
Code: Select all
XKBLAYOUT = "us, ru, ar, id, ua, uk"
XKBOPTIONS = "grp: alt_shift_toggle"


My X11 classic Gnome shows only 2 keyboard layouts, I need 3!

Via Gnome Classic GUI look at All Settings > Region and Language > Input Sources.
Input Sources seems to refer to the language group name so to get say a French layout where there is no current French input source, click the 'other' button, put French into the search bar and then click the 'other' button again and French layout choices should appear. Should be able to make lots of layouts, just need to decide how prefer switching between them which is done using the 'options' button.

Thanks, it works.

add locales:
Code: Select all
>dpkg-reconfigure locales


edit file (system language):
/etc/default/locale:
Code: Select all
LANG=ru_RU.UTF-8


edit file:
/etc/default/keyboard:
Code: Select all
 KEYBOARD CONFIGURATION FILE

# Consult the keyboard(5) manual page.

XKBMODEL="pc105"
XKBLAYOUT="us,ru,ua"
XKBVARIANT=""
XKBOPTIONS="grp:alt_shift_toggle"

BACKSPACE="guess"


In Gnome Classic: All Settings > Region and Language
add 3 language.
Reboot.
