I'm Russian, so I need two keyboard layouts - English and Russian. I usually switch them by Win+Space. Unfortunately, it isn't an option in ElementaryOS, so I tried to emulate it through

xdotool key --clearmodifiers Alt+Shift && xdotool key --clearmodifiers ''

command, and it works just fine with Ctrl+Space, for example. But, for some reason, I can't set Win+Space for it - it's already occupied by the "Applications Menu" shortcut. Nothing works to reset it - nor Shortcut Settings, nor dconf-editor, nor

dconf reset /org/gnome/desktop/wm/keybindings/panel-main-menu

It just keeps switching back to defaults. Am I doing something wrong, and is there a better way to switch keyboard layouts on custom keybindings?
