Description Jonathan Kamens 2013-07-18 08:10:38 UTC
In Cinnamon, when I open Region & Language settings and click Options, it says both the "Switch to previous source" and "Switch to next source" keyboard shortcuts are set to Shift-Ctrl-Space. I'm not sure how two different shortcuts can be set to the same thing, and indeed, when I type Shift-Ctrl-Space nothing happens.

It also says, "You can change these shortcuts in the keyboard settings," but when I look in the keyboard settings, there are no shortcuts to be set there for switching among input sources.

Cinnamon doesn't use the new keybindings in gnome Region & Language settings.
Cinnamon uses Alt-Shift to switch input source.

It can be changed, here's a list of valid key combos

$ gsettings range org.gnome.settings-daemon.peripherals.keyboard input-sources-switcher

To set

gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.peripherals.keyboard input-sources-switcher 'alt-shift'

Then logout for the change to take affect.

Comment 2 Jonathan Kamens 2013-07-18 09:02:29 UTC
Isn't it a bug that the Region & Language settings dialog told me to change the binding somewhere where I can't actually change it?

Isn't it a bug that there is no GUI for changing this binding?

Following arguments do not work:


Other arguments like 'caps' 'shift-caps' are ok.
