If you open "System Settings", and choose "Text Entry", you will have an option to add more then one keyboard language. You also have the option to assign a shortcut to change the language on the fly, and show a language switch in the notification area. AFAIK then you cannot add a language, and add different layouts to that language in Ubuntu. Instead you ...

Yes, the typical shortcut for copy and paste on the terminal (not only on gnome and not even only on gnu/linux is ctr + shift + v. Ctrl + c is Interrupt/Kill whatever you are running (SIGINT). It would not be prudent to change that. These shortcuts are older than Ctrl + c, ctrl + v. A more elaborate and better answer is here: ...

It seems, that problem was with the /var/lib/xkb folder write permissions. I changed it with sudo chmod a=rwx /var/lib/xkb (which was not easy without english/us keyboard) And after reboot I was able to use US layout again.

IBus is the modern Unix/Linux keyboard input method. Funnily, I experienced a problem because of the exact opposite of your situation: IBus wasn't turned on by default in a fresh Xubuntu installation. IBus inputs AND switching methods can be configured in the IBus config Window which can be found in "Settings" -> "Keyboard Input Methods" (with an "i" icon).

The workaround is to change "Keyboard layout" under "Typing Method" to something other than "Default".

Had the same problem - I removed US keyboard as an option even though UK was chosen first in list, just leaving the UK keyboard, and it reverted back to how it should be. Hope that helps!
