Change the key combination to change layout

Here you can post about the issues related to modifications performed manually (not through the kiosk wizard). Example: swapped kernel, added 3rd party modules or files.
Please describe in detail what has been changed and hopefully other kiosk user will be able to help.
Porteus team wont resolve bugs posted in this category as we support only modifications made by the kiosk wizard.

Change the key combination to change layout

Post#1 by MUZTORG » 09 Jun 2016, 13:14

We used Porteus Kiosk v.4.0
Is it possible to change the key combination to change layout from "Ctrl + space" to other, for example "Ctrl + SHIFT" or "ALT + SHIFT"?

I dont think openbox can accept 'Alt+Shift' as key combination. Please remaster kiosk installation ISO as per this doc:
unsquash 003-settings.xzm, edit /etc/xdg/openbox/rc.xml and change existing key combination to your preferred one.

Openbox wiki may help:
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
