Description Arnav 2008-10-08 14:56:57 EDT
Description of problem:

Adding the Keyboard layout indicator applet to a panel and then configuring additional keyboard layouts in it allows changing the currently used system keyboard layout.  However, once the system is rebooted, while the additional layouts remain configured and clicking on the applet display the various layouts, attempting to type when another layout is selected, doesn't actually type in that layouts but rather in the default layout.  

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Keyboard Indicator 2.22.3

How reproducible:
Each time

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Add the Keyboard Indicator applet to a panel
2.Right click the applet and select “Keyboard Preferences”
3.Click Layouts -> Add
4.Choose your layout of choice (I am using Isr)
5.Hit close
6.Click the applet to select a different keyboard layout.  Type anything anywhere and verify you can indeed type with a different layout.
7.Reboot the system
8. Click the applet to select a different keyboard layout.  Type anything anywhere and notice how you can only type in the default layout as oppose to the one you selected (despite the fact the applet displays the alternate layout).
  
Actual results:
Cannot switch between keyboard layouts.  Must remove the layout of choice and then configure it again after each reboot.

Expected results:
Can switch between keyboards layouts by simply clicking on the applet.
