I installed the latest Linux Deepin 2014.2 distro. It's a Chinese distro based on Ubuntu 14.04.

The OS is great, but there's one annoying flaw - when switching language, there appears a transparent switcher, and you need to switch again to actually make the change happen. It looks like this:

I'd like to have something similar to Ubuntu's behavior (switches immediately)

This question came from our site for Ubuntu users and developers.

  • what? nobody? nothing? – yuvi Jan 21 '15 at 20:19
  • Never even heard of it... Anyway, does CCSM work on your distro? (I'm using boring Vanilla Ubuntu myself, so there might be some back-and-forth going on) – Fabby Jan 22 '15 at 13:34
  • @Fabby Deepin uses GO as a backend, building their UI as HTML5 applications. As such, they have some weird stuff going on there. My last experience (with their previous release) tells me CCSM might screw things up a lot. I prefer a more direct approach (i.e doing things manually), if you can help with that :-) – yuvi Jan 23 '15 at 10:54
  • Sorry Yuvi, no clue even where to start to look... :( – Fabby Jan 23 '15 at 10:58

This problem seems absent in later versions of Deepin Linux.
