    Default Missing keyboard selection

    Using XFCE - When I start Settings > Settings Manager > Keyboard > Layout I am unable to add a different setting to Swedish. I need to add Greek, Spanish, English and Danish but the only option I have is "<All Settings" and "X Close". Where is this utility located? Perhaps it's set read only.

    It's possible to change the keyboard via "setxkbmap -layout gr" but then I can't "setxkbmap -layout en" as it comes out in Greek characters. I need to reboot.

    Thanks for any advice.

    Has the language been installed?

    Sorry, I don't understand this suggestion. I am not trying to switch the OS to Greek, merely produce Greek letters from the Swedish keyboard. Letters in the ASCII range hex 80 to hex FF. Since
    Code:
    setxkbmap -layout gr
    achieves the result I presume I don't need to install the language. The problem being that then I can't switch back to non-Greek using
    Code:
    setxkbmap -layout se
    as it produces
    Code:
    σετχκβμαπ /λαυοθτ σε
    and I have to log out to reset. That makes it very difficult to use Greek, Swedish and Danish letters while using a text editor. Under KDE I was able to do that from a panel icon.
