This cannot be so difficult.
I hate to say this, but under Windows this is: select KB, select switch 
key, click OK.
I refuse to believe, that nobody else has any problems switching 
keyboard layouts.
AND I refuse to believe, that there is no information at all on this 
but so far nobody on any list or forum as ever responded.
