Thanks! I got it to work after configuring the keyboard. Though the
keyboard worked fine, it wasn't set up correctly, but since it is, I
can switch again.

I was thinking that there must be something configured to prevent the
switching, but apparently there isn't anything to prevent it in the X
configuration. It was only a misconfigured keyboard.
