Comment 1 Ray Strode [halfline] 2008-09-30 18:11:25 UTC
might be gdm or gnome-settings-daemon.  for now assigning to gnome-settings-daemon.

Comment 2 Bastien Nocera 2008-09-30 18:35:54 UTC
I have no idea how that's supposed to work. Jon, what does gdm actual do when you set the session keyboard in the login screen?

Comment 3 Lauri Nurmi 2008-09-30 20:54:06 UTC
To summarize the bug:

The keyboard layout selection has no effect on the Live CD. It is not related to just French or USB or Belgium.  The layout will always be en-US.

Comment 4 Matthias Clasen 2008-09-30 22:33:41 UTC
please report what 

env | grep GDM 

reports in the session ?

Comment 5 Lauri Nurmi 2008-09-30 22:50:47 UTC
For language Finnish, keyboard "Finland (Classic)":

For language Finnish, keyboard "German":

Comment 6 Matthias Clasen 2008-09-30 23:14:48 UTC
Ok, that proves that everything is fine as far as gdm is concerned.

If you add a keyboard indicator applet to your panel (or open the keyboard capplet), what layout does it show as selected ?

Comment 7 Lauri Nurmi 2008-09-30 23:27:55 UTC
The indicator applet says "USA".

Comment 8 Matthias Clasen 2008-09-30 23:48:28 UTC
Is gnome-settings-daemon running ? Which version ? 
This problem should be fixed by 

* Fri Sep  5 2008 Matthias Clasen <mclasen@redhat.com> - 2.23.91-5
- Try harder to use the keyboard layout that gdm tells us

Or maybe not...

Comment 9 Matthias Clasen 2008-10-01 01:57:00 UTC
Here is what setxkbmap -print reports 

xkb_keymap {
        xkb_keycodes  { include "evdev+aliases(qwerty)" };
        xkb_types     { include "complete"      };
        xkb_compat    { include "complete"      };
        xkb_symbols   { include "pc+us+inet(evdev)+de(deadgraveacute):2+fi(classic):3+level3(ralt_switch_for_alts_toggle):1+level3(ralt_switch_for_alts_toggle):2+level3(ralt_switch_for_alts_toggle):3+group(alts_toggle)"     };
        xkb_geometry  { include "pc(pc104)"     };

This is after logging in with 'fi classic' selected in gdm, and three layouts configured in gnome: us, 'de  deadgraveacute', and 'fi classic'

Comment 10 Matthias Clasen 2008-10-01 03:37:53 UTC
Please try with gnome-settings-daemon-2.24.0-3.fc10.
That should fix it.
