xkb: New Applet for LXPanel

PCMan has added a new branch named lxpanel-xkb in the LXDE Repository.

svn co https://lxde.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/lxde/branches/lxpanel-xkb

It’s a new applet for lxpanel which will be a keyboard layout switcher. The original one in lxpanel is broken, and will be removed. The new one will be based on libxlavier, a good library handling xkb. However, we’re from Taiwan, and we don’t know how keyboard layouts work. So help is needed. If you’re a developer living in Europe or some other places requiring switching between different keyboard layouts, please help. (PCMan)

  1. I’m from Bulgaria and I would like to try it, but I’m not sure it would work with lxpanel version on my system (debian lenny)
