Description of problem:
Pressing "dot" (period) key on Numpad, when Num Lock is enabled should produce "," (comma) character when Lithuanian keyboard layout is selected. Currently it always writes "." (dot/period) character, which is not correct decimal separator for Lithuanian keyboard layout. Using GNOME DE on Wayland.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Switch to "Lithuanian" keyboard layout.
2. Turn on Num Lock on Numpad
3. Press "." (dot/period/Del) key on NumPad

Actual results:
Character "." (dot/period) is written on screen.

Expected results:
Character "," (comma) is written on screen.

Additional info:
Not really sure when this change happened, but probably not longer than a month ago. Noticed today on desktop PC.

Looks like this is issue only with LibreOffice Calc. I'll report it to LibreOffice issue tracker.

slighty late but just ftr, the keypad comma is assigned its own keysym in the XKB layouts: KP_Decimal. Interpretation of what that means (comma, dot, something else) is up to the client and part of the locale information. So it's not a keyboard layout issue.
