For working in Windows it is a more familiar and comfortable.

2. Select "Layouts" tab
3. Options: KEYS TO CHANGE LAYOUT

"Left Ctrl + Shift" that's not working for me, I'm trying to find a shortcut to switch between to keyboard layouts, but I couldn't.
I tried to customize a shortcut but I don't know the appropriate command to switch. Any help please?

Hi,
vincentv, your advice is totally right except the fact that there's no standard procedure how to add _shortcut_ for certain keyboard locale (or I could not find/ google it out).
For instance, if a user has English, German and French layouts, a shortcut like CTRL-SHIFT-1 would set directly (without going through all language layouts with CTRL-SHIFT) English, CTRL-SHIFT-2 would set German, and CTLR-SHIFT-3 - French.
Is it possible to do that in Mint 13 Maya (Mate)?

use the keyboard shortcuts and set your own.

"left Ctrl+Shift" must be default.

The current method of switching keyboard layout works well, (graphical, in system tray), but it should be a relatively simple matter of adding your own custom keyboard shortcut with the action of switching the keyboard layout. I'm not entirely certain it would be beneficial to have it as a default keyboard shortcut, but maybe so.
