I've just installed ubuntu 16.04 and installed
ubuntu mate. I've added other keyboard layouts via language indicator on the right upper panel. The indicator shows different layouts, I can switch between them using the applet or the shortcut
super+space, just the layout doesn't change - it's the layout I've choosen during the installation. When I log in on
unity, I'm able to switch between different keyboard layouts (although I had to add them to
unity desktop separately).
mate desktop I've added also new layouts to
keyboard preferences (in
system preferences. Still nothing happens when I'm switching between different layouts.
gsettings get org.mate.peripherals-keyboard-xkb.kbd layouts
The terminal output is:
['pl', 'ara', 'fr']
