Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 499026
Keyboard layout is ignored after log-in
Last modified: 2015-01-14 18:22:57 EST
Description of problem:
The keyboard layout that is selected during installation is ignored after logging in to the installed system.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
100% with two attempts.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Begin installation
2. Choose Finnish keyboard layout
3. Finish installation; log in to the system
Keyboard layout is US. GDM correctly indicates the layout is Finland, but after log-in it is US, and the only layout listed in Gnome's keyboard settings (by default) is USA.
Keyboard layout should be Finnish.
I only tried with Finnish layout, but I don't see why this would be a Finnish-specific problem.

Can you try updating to gdm-2.26.1-7.fc11,
control-center-2.26.0-6.fc11, and see if the problem goes away ?

Works for me.
Thanks for testing

I know that this is "an old bug" but this problem persists on all my Fedora 12 systems.
I use the "Canada French (legacy)" layout. When I shut down my machines (every once in a while for my desktop and server, and regularly for my laptop) after a new power-up, the US keyboard shows up as an optional keyboard layout, although the Canada French (legacy) layout is marked as the default; however, the US keyboard layout is the layout; to get the correct layout, in the system/keyboards/layouts screen I must select the US layout and click on "remove".
The above-mentioned packages, corresponding to F12, are all up to date.
