I wrote a report on this, it needs a redesign
Some guy on elementary subreddit helped me. There is a bug discussed on github: https://github.com/elementary/wingpanel-indicator-keyboard/issues/80
As suggested, I've changed org.gnome.desktop.input-sources from [('ibus', 'us'), ('xkb', 'ru')] to [('xkb', 'us'), ('xkb', 'ru')] with dconf-editor GUI tool and the indicator is visible now.
There are two ways you can change the language setting:
change Keyboard Which you can change by Alt+Shift
change input method Which you can change by Alt+Space(By default disabled)
Option one is easy even you can change at login-screen, But if you changed input-method this you can't change at login-screen using Alt+Space because ibus is not running by ...
There is a submenu in the keyboard layout selection for English (US) which I missed. So the steps are as easy as:
Go to System Settings > Keyboard
Click + in the lower left corner
Select English (US) from the list of keyboard layouts
Select English (US, alt. intl.)
Click Add Layout
I found the solution (I did the wrong combination before):
sudo dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration
Choose Generic 105-key PC (intl.)
Choose English (US)
Choose English (US) - English (intl., with AltGr dead keys)
Choose Right Alt (AltGr)
Choose No compose key
And that's it :)
You can try the following:
Open im-config through terminal
click OK button to go next
Click Yes to update system config.
Select Ibus as input method for the system
Click Ok and Ok for the next windows. Then restart your computer.
The sudo at step 1 is crucial. Without sudo the system just uses the default setting regardless of what you ...
After changing your keyboard settings, do in terminal:
You should see the options you have chosen,e.g:
You can try setting this command:
setxkbmap -model pc105 -layout pl -option 'lv3:lwin_switch'
with your ...
After many researches I found what was happening. The settings (from thinkpad + br) was being interfered by an additional options added by another model (korean).
How I solved:
First, checking the layout info with:
# setxkbmap -query
Second, setting ...
I prefer to swap Ctrl and Caps Lock. Keyboard -> Options -> Ctrl key position: Swap Ctrl and Caps Lock. In order to use Ctrl + \ to switch between keyboard layouts — Keyboard -> Shortcuts -> Universal Access: Next Keyboard Layout (Ctrl + \). So wen you press Caps Lock + \ layouts will change, when you press Ctrl(left) text input mode switches to upper/lower ...
It seems that the correct scheme where to find the switch-input key is:
I successfully changed the keyboard input keybinding with the following command:
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings switch-input-source "['<Super>f']"
Now, if I press Super+F it changes my keyboard layout.
this solution here worked very well for me on first try: http://mylinuxideas.blogspot.de/2015/04/enable-desktop-icons-and-right-click-on.html (I was setting up a skylake intel NUC i3 with elementary and OSX Yosemite theme for my wife to make the transition from a mac as easy as possible for her.

I was just looking at another answer (https://elementaryos.stackexchange.com/a/9277/7446 ) to a related question (about why shift-alt-tab behaviour was strange), and I think it might explain your problem too. In Elementary, go to settings -> keyboard -> layout, and you might find that shift-alt-tab is mapped to switch keyboard layouts. I disabled that ...
