Hey! I’ve recently switched to EOS and I love it so far!
I’ve tried to get my keyboard layout to load everytime I boot by putting these commands in my i3 config:
exec setxkbmap -layout us,il
exec setxkbmap -option ‘grp:alt_shift_toggle’
However, they don’t seem to run whenever I boot, and I always have to input them myself. Does anyone have an idea why it could happen?
hey welcome to your endeavour and thanks for using i3!
exec --no-startup-id setxkbmap -layout us,il -option grp:alt_shift_toggle
is not working too?
and to make sure… you added this in

Hey! I tried that too right now and pressed Mod+Shift+R but it still did not work.
Yes, I did put it there.
but running the command manually do work?

Yes. It does.
Maybe I need to log out instead of reloading i3 to check if the change you said worked?
could be in case something is not working i would try that at least…
As I just checked and it is working with this for me:
exec --no-startup-id setxkbmap -layout us,de -option grp:win_space_toggle
alt_shift_toggle is working the same…
