Last modified: 2008-12-12 22:17:32 EST
Description of problem:
Gnome "decides" to be in US keyboard instead of the configured one
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use system-config-keyboard (or at install time to pick a non US keyboard)
2. Gnome starts to use thgat national keyboard. Log out
3. Ensure that the Non-US keyboard is the one selected in GDM. Login. Gnome is again in US mode.
Gnome uses US keyboard.
Gnome using my national keyboard
I use English as language but French as keyboard. When I noticed the problem
I tried to reconfigure X... and found taht it used a builtin config. After installing system-config-display (aI will fill a bug about this not being part
of ths standard installation) and ensuring that config has the right value for keyboard I was baffled that gnome still was using US keyboard. I thought it could be GDM but was displaying "French latin 9"
I ended finding teh Gnome keybord preferences tool (in the preferences menu)
and found that the only layout listed was the US keyboard one. I added the French one, selected it as default and that fixed the problem.
But I still consider this bug as criical enough to be a relase-stoppe.
The updates I did tonight (could do them earlier since I hit a network bug) seem to have fixed the problem
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.
