View Full Version : Swithcing between installed languages - Hot-key

16th July 2004, 02:47 AM
I write in English and French on a Daily basis, both languages are installed and work. The trouble is swithcing between the two; is there a Hot key like CTRL+SHIFT, this would save me some assle. Sometimes my mom, my wife or my babysiters use my laptop (with there seperate user accounts) and they also need to write in French and/or English. There is no way they will ever get the Su password, never ever ever, no no no .... perhaps I could ''program'' a hot key for this switch. Unless one already exist.

Good question, I've been wondering about this myself. If you can figure a command to swith the language, you can allow users to sudo this command without entering any password.

See man sudo:

man sudo

And remember to use the visudo command to edit sudoers file, it's the only safe way.


Let us know how this works out.
