How to make a shortcut key for switching keyboard layout permanently ?

I can switch layout temporarily holding Alt (Planet) key, but I cant switch layout permanently.
Shortcut "Ctrl + Space" does not work despite the fact that in .kcm file thereis a record:

key SPACE {
    label:                              ' '
    base:                               ' '
    alt, meta:                          fallback SEARCH
    ctrl:                               fallback LANGUAGE_SWITCH
}

It’s very inconvenient to switch the layout using the graphical selection of layout in Android.
I would rather switch the layout by pressing Fn + Sym key or something like that.

Thanks a lot, very interesting information.
This explains the many oddities in keyboard behavior, commented lines in .kcm files e.t.c.
