I'm using Mint 14 XFCE, 64-bit.
Struggling to setup cyrillic (Russian) input method.
Can someone point me good web resources regarding this?
Googling didn't help...
You should be able to do it using XFCE's keyboard settings. Run this command from a terminal:
This should open the keyboard settings window, go to the "Layout" tab and click "Add":
Choose "Russian" in the window that appears
If for some reason the above fails, you can always switch layouts using
setxkbmap -layout ru
