Hello!

Could anyone recommend a keyboard layout indicator, compatible with tint2 panel and Openbox wm? Or just any other X-compatible utility.

TIA. ;)

An even better way of doing that would be to simply define the layouts and map each to a keybinding in your ~/.xbindkeysrc. For example,

Code:
"setxkbmap us"
alt + shift + 1

"setxkbmap de"
alt + shift + 2

As far as the applet switcher goes, well I am not really sure. How about fbxkb?

I use xxkb with peksystray. I have it set to only show county code. It works quite nicely, and has the advantage of being in ports :)

Here is my config:

.xxkbrc
Code:
XXkb.mainwindow.enable: yes
XXkb.mainwindow.appicon: yes
XXkb.mainwindow.type: tray
XXkb.mainwindow.in_tray: yes
XXkb.mainwindow.geometry: 16x16+0+0
XXkb.mainwindow.label.enable: yes
XXkb.mainwindow.label.text.1: DK
XXkb.mainwindow.label.text.2: US
XXkb.mainwindow.label.background: #366892
XXkb.mainwindow.label.foreground: black
XXkb.mainwindow.label.font: -misc-*-r-*-15-*

XXkb.controls.two_state: no
XXkb.group.base: 1
XXkb.group.alt: 2

XXkb.button.enable: no

XXkb.bell.enable: no
