Description Michael Schwendt 2009-08-27 10:25:12 UTC
F12 Alpha

1.) For unknown reasons, the keyboard layout chosen in Anaconda was not made the default in GDM. Only after I had logged in, I noticed it and used "System > Preferences > Keyboard" to add and enable the layout for Germany - eliminate dead keys.

2.) After logging out, GDM still defaulted to keyboard layout "USA". I opened the "Other..." dialog to choose "Germany - eliminate dead keys" and could not enter my password. The password prompt was opened but disabled. No cursor. I had to click "Cancel" and retry.

Reproducibility: Always

Steps to reproduce:
1. On GDM login screen, choose/click a user, don't enter a password, wait for the session settings to appear at the bottom
2. In the keyboard layout combobox, choose "Other..." and choose a new keyboard layout
3. Password prompt gets disabled. One cannot type in the password and must "Cancel".

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 12 development cycle.
Changing version to '12'.

I have not been able to reproduce the second issue in current F12. Are you still seeing this problem (password entry disabled after keyboard change) ?

Comment 5 Michael Schwendt 2009-12-02 12:08:45 UTC
No, with F12 final there are no such problems.
