KKBSwitch is a keyboard layout indicator for KDE 2 and 3. It is useful when you have configured the XKeyboard extension to have more than one keyboard group (ie US/ASCII and Russian). An icon in the system tray indicates which layout is currently active. It does not help you configure XKeyboard, it merely indicates the current group. You configure XKeyboard by editing the XF86Config file. Clicking the icon or selecting the desired group from the icon's menu switches groups. Icons are configurable. There is also a "Toggle mode" (toggles between the two most recently used layouts). The keyboard layout can be switched for each window separately or globally.
