Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 591981
keyboard layout keeps comming back after deletion
Last modified: 2010-05-16 04:03:31 EDT
Description of problem:
I use US keyboard layout with euro sign on 5. Whenever i edit keyboard layouts and add this particular layout i delete other one (standard US).
But every time i restart system it comes back.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
every time system rebooted only under GNOME DE.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. add keyboard layout of your choice
2. delete standard US layout from the list
3. reboot system and take a look at layout list again
2 (two) US layouts (US and US with euro sign on 5).
one US layout of my choice
On daily bases i type in two languages - Georgian and English. i can't tell you how frustrating it is to go through layout delete procedure every time i restart computer.
I switch very often between layouts and it's killing me now to deal with this problem since F12.
workaround solves this problem.
In /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/00-system-setup-keyboard.conf default Xkbdoption set to 'us'. After setting it to 'us euro' i have my euro keyboard layout as default and other layouts. No extra layouts are showing up any more.
As for me this is good enough to close the bug.
