Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 499213
Keyboard selection on GDM login screen is ignored in F11 Preview
Last modified: 2015-01-14 18:22:57 EST
Description of problem:
I selected UK keyboard on gdm login screen, when logged in to Gnome I have a usa keyboard
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Every time I log in to F11 Preview (fully updated from rawhide)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install F11 Live DVD i386
2. Select UK keyboard at login screen
3. Login to gnome.
I get a US keyboard map (shift + 3 gives me '#' etc)
$ xprop -root | grep XKB
_XKB_RULES_NAMES_BACKUP(STRING) = "evdev", "evdev", "us", "", "terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp"
_XKB_RULES_NAMES(STRING) = "evdev", "evdev", "us", "", "terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp"
I expected a UK keyboard
I can add the keyboard selector applet to the gnome panel and change it, or type 'setxkbmap gb'
The language setting is set correctly, I do have the expected en_GB locale.
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 ?
Applying those 3 updates (from koji) and the dependency control-centre-filsystem-2.26.0-6.fc11.i586.rpm fixes the issue for me. Keyboard selection at gdm login now applies in Gnome desktop as expected.
I'm relieved to hear that. Those builds will be in the next snapshot.
Sorry to say thsi problem is not fixed. The package versions are the latest from rawhide as listed above.
I mistakenly believed this was fixed because in my gnome session I have the keyboard indicator applet and I had deleted the USA keyboard as an option and only left Gbr. After removing the applet the problem returns, and I still get a USA keyboard in Gnome despite selecting a UK one in the gdm login screen.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
This is fixed in F11 Final
