    In KDE3 you do this in the Region/Accessibility>Keyboard Layout module, not the Country/Region/Language module.
    Enable Keyboard Layout and set the Switching options, then in the Keyboard Shortcuts module define the key combination you want.

    In KDE4 go to Configure Desktop > Regional and Language > Keyboard Layout > Layout. If you have troubles with shortcuts in KDE4 take look to bugs.kde.org - there was some problem with shortcuts in the last few versions, maybe you will find useful informations/workaround if your shortcuts doesn't work. You can also try here: KDE forums.
    Good luck.

    What do u meeeean by Keyboard Shortcuts? I use kde 3.x.x and the only similar to this is a tab named Xkb Options. I click to the Enable xkb options button and then to alt+shift change layout option.
    The problem is that this is not working i press alt_shift (left or right alt) and i cant switch from UK to GR.
    Do u have any idea what might be the problem?
