I'm trying to setup a keyboard shortcut to change the input language on my Ubuntu 13.04 running gnome 3.8.

I don't really care which service handles this, as long as I can Alt+shift to change inputs, and have an indication of which language is currently used in the taskbar.

I'd love for some guidance from someone who got it working. Thanks

Actually, how did you installed Gnome 3.8 in Ubuntu Raring? If you are using the PPA, is better just to uninstall it. – Braiam Sep 23 '13 at 16:50

This seems to be a bug in Ubuntu 13.04. You might be able to fix it by using the Gnome3 PPA, but I haven't tried myself.
