In menu System --> Preferences -->Keyboard
Click Select "Layouts" tab.
Click Options button.
search for KEYS TO CHANGE LAYOUT and change it for what you want.

If it does not work try:
Code: Select all
setxkbmap -option grp:alt_shift_toggle "ru,us"

To make it default.
Go to Menu > System > Preferences > Startup Applications. Click on add. Give a whatever name you prefer, and then in the Command field paste the code provided:
Code: Select all
setxkbmap -option grp:alt_shift_toggle "ru,us"

Click on add, now this will startup when your desktop startup.
This use Alt+Shift.
You can look http://www.freebsd.org/doc/handbook/lang-setup.html for the xorg way to do it.
