I have a Mac in the office and PC in home.

Is there a way to tweak Fedora 16 with Gnome3 to use Mac-like keyboard switch shortcur? (Left win + Space)


The closest preconfigured one in Gnome 3 is Alt+Space.

Go to System Settings > Keyboard Layout > Layouts > Options ....

Expand the Key(s) to change layout menu and click the checkbox on the shortcut sequence you like the best.

  • And can I change some configuration manually or add some custom hotkey? – skayred Mar 4 '12 at 9:50
  • Sadly, there isn't an easy way to add a custom key sequence to Gnome 3 for changing the keyboard layout. You could write your own shell script that interfaces with 'setxkbmap' to change the keyboard layout, though this would take a lot more effort. – Adam Prax Mar 4 '12 at 10:02
  • Ok, can you provide some links to read about it? – skayred Mar 4 '12 at 10:12

See https://stackoverflow.com/questions/14172068/slow-keyboard-layout-switching-in-gnome-3-6 ... the point is that for switching keyboard layout just with modifiers you need to use gnome-tweak-tool.
