Distinct switch combination for distinct layout in ubuntu

It's possible to assingdistinct switch combination in Fedore, like
Ctrl+1 for englsih
Ctrl+2 for russian
Ctrl+3 for azerbaijani
Ctrl+4 for ukranian

But in Ubuntu
There is only possible to assign one combination to switch one by one, which is not convenient for me.
So, how to get that feature?

That probably depends on the User interface you are using. Fedora's default is usually gnome, while Ubuntu uses Unity, which is a terrible UI to modify. Maybe you should look at another Ubuntu Spinoff, like Ubuntugnome.

How could I safely remove that and install spinoff or ununtugnome? Without loosing important user  data?

You can backup the contents of the /home/UserName folder. User data is stored there. Then just install another OS, it's installer will usually find other OS's and ask you what you want it to do, install alongside the previous OS, remove it and install the new one, etc, and there you also have manual options where you can delete or format current partitions and assign them your mount points the way you like.

so there is no
apt-get install

Open in new window

way to install that... cause the installation level is deeper than just installing software, I thought that GUI's are just something which are on the top of linux kernel.

You can add GUI's to an already installed Distro, but those usually don't work optimally, and I also don't know everything you'd need to install.

For XFCE you could try sudo apt-get install xfce4, or for KDE sudo apt-get install kde-standard. But I have no idea whether everything for a full desktop is then included.
