I tried to change the keyboard switch to Alt+Shift, but the graphic menu does not respond to pressing Alt+Shift.
I have two Ubuntu installed in parallel:
- Ubuntu 18.04.1, which at the first launch was switched to Alt+Shift. It was updated until 18.04.2, and now everything is in order with it.
- Ubuntu 18.04.2, which I installed today and she does not want to switch to Alt+Shift.
From what I remember - in 18.04.1 the interface for switching the layout was different (not the same as now in 18.04.2). And there I switched the layout keys without any problems. And now, on the new system, the new menu asks for "Enter a new combination" but does not respond to pressing Alt+Shift (or Shift+Alt).
From the question-answer on SuperUser, I learned that you can edit the keyboard configuration file. I'll do it. I just have a file with working Alt+Shift from the first system (18.04.1-up-18.04.2).
But I also noticed that in both cases the graphical menu shows that input switching takes place via Shift+Super+Space (and Super+Space) and in both cases it works. But Alt+Shift also works on the system 18.04.1-up-18.04.2, but the graphic menu does not inform the user about this (as it was in the “previous-old-18.04.1” graphic menu).
In both systems, all packages are updated in
apt upgrade. And both systems are installed in VirtualBox on Windows10-Host. And I used RU locale)))
