 I've just played with IBus. I can't setup layout switching using
 <Alt>+<Shift> (most popular keystroke for russian/ukrainian spoken people.
 Seems like keystroke should contain at least one 'not modificator' key.
 <alt> + space but not just <alt> or <alt>+<shift>. Also I can't find
 setting to use ScrollLock as layout indicator (another popular feature).
 Anyway I will use KDE keyboard. Looks like really better for me.
 Maybe the better solution is to provide setting like this:
 (*) Use IBus for all desktop environments
 ( ) Use desktop environment related keyboard switching
 I saw "Force IBus input" setting. Maybe that is it.
