I have Ubuntu 18.04 but I installed unity with it.

I have configured switching keyboard languages using ALT+SHIFT using the Text Entry Settings.

However, whenever I restart the computer and the OS starts, it does not work. If I go to the settings again, the ALT+SHIFT still appears there, however only when I clear and re-set this it works again, until I restart again.

gsettings get org.gnome.desktop.input-sources xkb-options



This left alt and left shift I configured with the GNOME Tweak Tool as I found in another question, but it did not help either.

I found that this problems occurs only after the computer wakes up after being suspended. If I restart the computer then it works well and ALT+SHIFT successfully changes the keyboard language.

Did anyone face this issue? Can you help me to solve this annoying problem?

Thank you.

  • Can you please edit your question and show us the output from the command gsettings get org.gnome.desktop.input-sources xkb-options – Gunnar Hjalmarsson Jun 10 '18 at 0:12
  • @GunnarHjalmarsson Thank you, I edited the question – user1002065 Jun 10 '18 at 9:23
  • Then try to remove it: gsettings reset org.gnome.desktop.input-sources xkb-options (my thought is that there may be a conflict) – Gunnar Hjalmarsson Jun 10 '18 at 9:52
  • @GunnarHjalmarsson I tried it, it doesn't help. – user1002065 Jun 10 '18 at 22:22

I haven't found anything better than changing ALT+Shift to Shift+ALT in Text Entry Settings and it's still working after wake up
