Do you mean kxkb ? Hehe :) Well : 1. I don't like to switch layouts with ctrl+alt+k. After layout is switched to russian, switching back to us isn't working with ctrl+alt+k, so I need click the icon to switch back to english. Instead, I prefer ctrl+shift for layout switching (impossible with kxkb, since it suppresses default xkb behaviour) 2. kkbswitch only indicates current layout, the swithing is actually preformed by xkb. This is correct, IMO. 3. ex-Windows users would prefer to use ctrl+shift (or ctrl-alt, or shift+shift) layout switch, instead of ctrl+alt+k (the only available in kxkb) and mouse. 4. AltLinux, a quite good, if not best, russian distro uses kkbswitch as layout indicator (no kxkb). I really understand and appreciate their choice for the reason indicated above. Is that enough to consider kkbswitch as a portage candidate ? ;-)
