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…
Thank you. I’ll try to logout and see if it’ll work
I’ll update later, when I’m available to do so. Thank you so much!
zou are welcome!
ups <( …
you are welcome
and yea need logout back in to load the change… just tested…
Hey there! I wanted to thank you. It finally works now.
