Just today I installed Xubuntu 17.04 and I can't, for the life of me, figure out where I can enable the "Different layout for each window" setting. I came here from Gnome 3 where there is the gnome-tweak-tool which makes setting this option quite easy. Is there something of the sort for XFCE? Thank you in advance

On XFCE, you have to add the Keyboard layouts plugin to a panel. On Xubuntu it is installed by default. If it's not, install it using: apt-get install xfce4-xkb-plugin and add it to a panel.

Right-click on it afterwards, and go to Properties to configure what you want.

  • Ooh jeez. I can't understand why this is "hidden". At any rate, thank you very much
