I go to ibus preferences in Lubuntu and can add French (Canada), but it's not the Canadian Multilingual layout. I tried installing m17 ibus packages and it adds a bunch of languages but not more French options (other than the French azerty m17 option). I didn't have this problem in ubuntu, just Lubuntu. Please help! Thanks in advance.
You can use
setxkbmap to change your keyboard layout settings. Just open a terminal window and type:
setxkbmap ca multix
This will get you a Canadian Multilingual Standard keyboard layout. You can also create a desktop launcher with your keyboard layouts. Create a file named
$HOME\Desktop and open it with a text editor. Add the following lines:
[Desktop Entry] Encoding=UTF-8 Version=1.0 Type=Application Terminal=false Exec=/usr/bin/setxkbmap ca multix Name=Keyboard Layout StartupNotify=false Name[fr_CA]=multix
If you prefer to use the old Canadian French keyboard layout you can use
setxkbmap ca and to get back to the US layout use
ibus-xkbd and in your normal keyboard setup (not
ibus) choose canadian multilingual, then in choose
xkbd as a ibus input method and it will be canadian multilingual.
