Previous 15.04 version had an easy solution to change language on Caps Lock in System > Keyboard > Shortcuts > Typing

After update to 15.10 bind Caps Lock to 'Switch to next input source' is gone.


Gnome tweak tool GUI check:

Gnome tweak tool > typing > Caps Lock key behavior check Caps Lock is disabled.


gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings switch-input-source "['VoidSymbol']"

    I've tried this on Ubuntu 16.04 with Gnome 3 and it doesn't work. – Cristiana Nicolae Aug 30 '16 at 7:15

    @CristianaNicolae Answer above for the 15.10 version only. Ubuntu 16.04 with Gnome 3 just Settings > Typing > Modifiers-only switch to next source. – Kir Novak Nov 8 '16 at 1:21

    Thank you very much! Now I've finally managed to solve my problem! Here are all the steps which I've done in Ubuntu 16.04: All Settings > Keyboard > Shortcuts tab> Typing > Modifiers-only switch to next source > click on Disable and choose, from the menu, the desired key combination (Ant+Shift). I've posted it for the benefit of other Ubuntu users. Thanks, once again! – Cristiana Nicolae Nov 8 '16 at 7:04
