I cannot add more than 4 keyboard layouts in Linux Mint Qiana running Cinnamon. Is that normal? Is there such limitation or I am doing something wrong?

This is known issue and there's request to fix it.

There was a limitation (feature) of four keyboard layouts allowed in gnome-control-center and gnome-settings-daemon, but in recent releases it has been removed. However, Mint developers have not merged this changes into cinnamon yet.

UPDATE

After looking more into this issue, it seems there's bug in X server and it is present in all DEs. I only found a workaround link.

UPDATE #2

This issue is fixed in Ubuntu 14.04.

  • Well, is this issue related only to Gnome and Mint Cinnamon? Can you propose me distro with the lack of this limitation? Or DE? Does other Mint DEs (Mate, KDE, Xfce) have proper layout facilities?

  • Yes, it's related only to them.

  • In Mint Xfce I had the same issue. It's undoubted. And hence it appears my question: it's Mint core-related problem or DE-related problem?

  • Well, X server is used commonly (in all Linux distros). Thus, you insisted on that there is no distros without this problem? Nothing? I heard, that KDE is free of it.
