Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 528433
gdm seems to select keyboard layout at random
Last modified: 2015-01-14 18:23:45 EST
Description of problem:
My native keyboard interface is "Belgium", but I have "US" additionally available. The "Belgium" layout is my preferred layout for normal activities, I only need the "US" layout occasionally.
During login, after clicking on my username, gdm seems to setup a keyboard layout at random. Sometimes it selects "Belgium", sometimes "US". I can't find a pattern in it, although it seems (the incorrect) "US" is selected more often than (the correct) "Belgium".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot the system into gdm after having setup two keyboard layouts
2. Click on the user
3. Verify the chosen keyboard layout
The chosen keyboard layout seems to be selected at random
My preferred keyboard layout should be chosen.
This is a regression. The previous gdm from a couple of weeks ago did not show this behaviour.
If relevant, here is the smolt profile for this machine:
I just upgraded my laptop to F12 Beta.
This problem still persists.
Could this be the same bug as #530452?
Could you try installing gdm-2.28.1-6.fc12 or later from Koji, http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/packageinfo?packageID=235
(I'm not a GDM developer, I was just going through the bugs searching for a solution to what was bug 530452.)
After reading bug 530452, I'm pretty sure my bug is a duplicate. I'll mark it as such and follow up on bug 530452.
