Marc, 

 

In Fcitx, this was assigned to "Trigger Input Method", but it doesn't switch keyboards.

I believe the hotkey to switch between languages is ?CTRL? + ? SPACE BAR?

Hi, 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am looking for the functionality of the Compose key in Lubuntu [1]. A Compose Key would allow me to type special characters conveniently. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Also, Is there a hotkey to switch between input languages (e.g. Alt+Shift) ? 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Regards.

It is sadly rather harder in Lubuntu than in mainstream Ubuntu -- and 

that is harder today than 2-3 years ago, because GNOME 3 has removed 

the functionality from its keyboard preferences.
