xkbsel-aw - select keyboard layout using a Xaw GUI
xkbsel-aw is a simple GUI for selecting the keyboards and indicating
the current selection. It displays a window where the current selection
is indicated. When clicking on this window, a menu of the configured
map shortcuts together with the descriptions pops up, allowing to
select one of them. installs the first configured map when started.
xkbsel-aw has no own options, but it accepts common Xt options such as
-display, -geometry, -bg or -fg. As the map descriptions are normally
written in local language, xkbsel-aw is using font sets instead of
fonts to allow automatic encoding selection based on current locale.
That means that -fn will not work. Use fontSet for this purpose, either
on the command line using e.g.
-xrm ’*fontSet: -*-courier-medium-r-*-*-*-100-*-*-m-*-*-*’
or use application default file.
Following lines added to .fvwm2rc will automatically start the selector
Style "xkbsel-aw" NoTitle, Sticky, WindowListSkip
AddToFunc "InitFunction" "I" ...
+ "I" Exec exec xkbsel-aw -geometry 48x24-0-0 &
If you are using FvwmWharf or FvwmButtons modules, instead of starting
and explicitly positioning xkbsel-aw in InitFunction you can dock the
application into them using the Swallow directory, e.g. by adding
following line into your FvwmButtons configuration in .fvwm2rc (should
be written on single line):
*FvwmButtons(Swallow (NoHints) "xkbsel-aw"
’Exec xkbsel-aw -geometry 48x24’)
To switch the keyboards on ctrl-F1, -F2 etc., add something like this
into your .fvwm2rc:
Key F1 A C Exec exec xkbsel us
Key F2 A C Exec exec xkbsel sk
Key F3 A C Exec exec xkbsel cs
