Subject description: English and Thai, for instance
 

I would like to use two different keyboards:
- English, to write English text (open office)
- Thai to write Thai text

Thai font seems to be available: the Opera browser shows the
Thai pages correct ( I copied the M$ fonts Smile
I would like to easy switch between this two options.
Any help or hint how to do this is welcome Cool

Settings --> Mouse/keyboard wizard --> advanced keyboard config
Then add (i) a thai layout and (ii) a modifier (such as alt_shift).

I got it:

Puppy Setup --> Mouse/keyboard wizard --> advanced Xorg keyboard config
1) add the required "Layout" and "LayoutVariants"
2) Options --> "Group Shift/Lock" here select keys to switch keyboard
--> "Use keyboard LED" here select LED to show alternate

now it works almost perfect: I can quick and easy change with "alt-shift" Laughing
But almost means: the "no dead-key" option is not working (as now I have dead keys) Sad
Has anyone a good idea how to fix this??

I could fix this also Very Happy
my "/etc/X11/xorg.conf" file:

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Keyboard0"
Driver "kbd"
Option "XkbRules" "xorg"
Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
Option "XkbLayout" "ch,th" #xkeymap0
Option "XkbVariant" "de_nodeadkeys,tis"
Option "XkbOptions" "grp:alt_shift_toggle,grp_led:scroll"
EndSection

in the line:
Option "XkbVariant" "de_nodeadkeys,tis" <=== here
I had to insert a second variant: ",tis"
and now it works perfect !!!

open question: why the wizzard created a not correct working version?? Confused

Is possible to do this in Xvesa, because I still can't find suitable video driver for Xorg?
