A long time ago when I used Gnome it was trivially easy. But how in the
heck do you install a second keyboard in Xfce?

I finally found the answer here:

This sets up an icon (or text) in the Xfce panel. You can switch
input languages by clicking on the icon/text, or you can assign a
hotkey shortcut to switch languages. 

Having done that I can now enter Greek in a LO Writer document, or any
other application on the computer. I assigned a shortcut so that I can
switch back and forth between US English and Greek as I'm typing.

At first I was perplexed because some of the keys seemed to give me the
Greek glyphs that sound similar to the English letters, e.g., t gives
me a tau, but the s only gave me upper- and regular lowercase sigma, not
the word-ending sigma. Later I found an image of a real Greek keyboard
and discovered that the word-ending sigma is the w key. I need to print
myself a picture of a real Greek keyboard and post it above my monitor
for reference until I get the hang of touch typing in Greek.
