NAME kbdd - simple per-window keyboard layout switching daemon
SYNOPSIS kbdd [ -n | --nodaemon ] kbdd [ -h | --help ] [ -v | --version ]
DESCRIPTION kbdd is a simple keyboard layout daemon that switches and restores layouts on a per-window basis. -n, --nodaemon run in nodaemon (foreground) mode -h, --help print a short usage summary -v, --version print the program version
DBUS INTERFACE Kbdd registers a dbus interface in order to notify a window manager about layout change and listens on this interface for incoming requests. This interface can be used in WM widgets to indicate the current layout. The dbus interface has the following methods: getLayoutName( uint32 ) returns a string representing the layout group name set_layout( uint32 ) sets current group getCurrentLayout returns current layout group id next_layout switches to the next keyboard layout prev_layout switches to the previous keyboard layout The following events (signals) are available: layoutChanged returns new group number layoutNameChanged returns name for the new group You can change the layout with the following dbus-send command: dbus-send --dest=ru.gentoo.KbddService /ru/gentoo/KbddService ru.gentoo.kbdd.set_layout uint3 ↲ 2:1
BUGS Some users reported problems with sticking meta-keys (Alt or Meta4), however, at the moment there is not enough information collected to conclude if this is caused by kbdd or not. Newly found bugs may be reported on the project page at github ⟨http://github.com/qnikst/kbdd/issues⟩.
