Cannot switch keyboard layout and see what it is. No longer talking about keyboard switching with ctr-alt which is still unsolved.

I am not sure it is hijacking. Are we not still talking about keyboard
switching? Not that I would mind a new subject heading. :-) Did not
mean to hijack anything. I guess we are not talking about ctrl alt
keyboard switch.

The flag shows "Keyboard Layout". Yes, it is English but what kind?
This is like calling you Derek in a class with 5 Dereks. Also if you
think about it, most likely a person using keyboard switch with Dvorak
would be switching from normal to Dvorak.

How did you change the language indicator? I tried that a back when
they first changed the flag icon but had no luck.
