What do I have to do to switch from writing in one language (such as English) to another (such as French) on Lubuntu 18.04.1 LTS? I use French and I need to use Arabic.


As for myself, I have to switch between French, English and Russian. I installed all 3 Input sources in Settings/Region & language. I recently discovered I had to press Super Key+Shift+Space to switch keyboard setting.

When there are only 2 input sources, just press Super Key + Space.

  • Super+Space should work too. – pomsky Jan 25 at 7:18
  • Super+Space should work with more than 2 input sources too. Super+Space and Shift+Super+Space do the same thing, but in the opposite directions (left-to-right vs. right-to-left). – pomsky Jan 25 at 7:32
