I've tried downloading the SCIM input method program. Normally I should be able to press CTRL+Space to switch languages, however, this hot-key is not working. How to enable Korean language typing and also to be able to display it in the terminal?

  • What do you mean by "be able to display it in the terminal"? The default language being Korean?

Modifying keymaps

Method 1

You can setup keymaps, both for X11 and terminal, by modifying the file etc/default/keyboard.

If you want to setup English and Korean, and switching between both with ALT+SHIFT, you need to edit the following lines:


Method 2

You can use setxkbmap to define different keymaps and how to switch between them, such as following:

$ setxkbmap -layout us,ko -option grp:alt_shift_toggle

The command line above sets two differents keymaps en_US and ko_KO and enables to change between both with ALT+SHIFT.
