gxkb - Man Page

X11 keyboard indicator and switcher.

Synopsis

gxkb

Description

gxkb is a little indicator applet which allows one to quickly switch between different keyboard layouts in X. A flag corresponding to the country of the active layout is shown in the indicator area.

The applet is written in C and uses the GTK+ library and therefore does not depend on any GNOME components.
