Maybe: I switched to fcitx a few years back, based on advice from this
list. I'd still not call the setup "out of the box", but I can follow
the "magic spell" in my notes, and it works first or second time :-)

I use ctrl-space to toggle between English and Japanese.

I have "pinyin" installed, which shows when I right-click the keyboard
(or mozc icon) in the xfce notification area in the panel. Once I click
the pinyin icon, ctrl-space toggles between that and English. I.e. I
then need to go back there and click the mozc icon to have ctrl-space go
back to toggling between English and Japanese.

The fcitx "Global config" tab has hotkeys defined to "scroll between
input method". That might be a keyboard-only way to switch between 3
languages? They don't do anything for me, though.

until I click the "Esc" button on it. (Clicking on the keyboard graphic
that popped up also worked.) That was found by right-clicking fcitx and
then "virtual keyboard".

Ah, it seems I can switch between English and Russian, using ctrl-space,
by adding "Keyboard - Russian - Russian (with Ukrainian-Belorussian
layout)" to the list in the Input Method tab in fcitx configuration.

(Is there any IME for Russian, so I can type a transliteration, instead
of needing to know a different keyboard layout?)


*: Sorry for the gibberish: UK keyboard, so I know longer have the
hiragana showing on my keyboard.
