I'd like to change and see the keyboard layout using XFCE. Is there any simple way to do that? I had one when using gnome, but currently I want to use XFCE.

did you solved it ? – user84277 Nov 22 '12 at 16:35
no, I just run each time I start XFCE: setxkbmap 'pl(intl)' – Szymon Lipiński Nov 23 '12 at 18:33
did you need write password for it? – user84277 Nov 23 '12 at 19:49
no, no password, I just write it in console and it just works – Szymon Lipiński Nov 26 '12 at 7:30
