How to change Ctrl-Alt-K combination to another one (f.e. Alt-Shift)

 
I have two keyboard layouts, I dont want to use Ctrl-Alt-K comb, it's too long and I need to click it twice to switch layout.

Can I:
1). Map another key combination, f.e. Alt-Shift will switch to another keyboard layout (pressed once, NOT TWICE like Ctrl-Alt-K)
2). Map a key combinations for each layout
f.e.
Ctrl-1 - first layout
Ctrl-2 - second layout
etc...

BTW, tell me if u can, why when I running via Xstart in KDE (ubuntu ) Settings (Hardware -> Imput devices -> Keyboard models) there are no any keyboard to chose , so standard keyboard switch isn't working. But directly, without Xstart, all works well. Do I can only use Xstart keyboard switching mode?


Program Ver. : Xmanager 4
Connect Method : Xstart connection

Currently you cannot map keyboard layout switch shortcut to different key combination. We will try to add it in the future version. I have requested the feature to our developers.

Also, the problem with layout not showing up is dues to lack of Xkeyboard extenstion support in the current Xmanager version. We plan to add this extension in the next major release.

Thank you for your patieance and we appreciate your feedbacks.
