Are you sure it has something to do with SLIM? Can you reproduce this reliably?

I know the plugin resets its configuration sometimes when the panel quits, but I doubt it depends on the login manager. Can you try with LXDM or GDM?

Comment 2 sd.domrep 2010-07-05 14:58:03 UTC
No, it hasn't. This problem hasn't any relation with SLIM. I checked it with GDM.
In GDM after logout I have the same result, and it is not "sometimes" it happens always.

Interesting, but if I do - "xfce4-panel -r" plugin doesn't forget its configuration.
It always happen after "logout/login".

I created this bug to make sure someone knows about this annoying problem.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 14 development cycle.
Changing version to '14'.

Bug still exists, even on Fedora 14.

Comment 5 sd.domrep 2010-11-22 20:29:10 UTC
Ok, I solved this problem by adding:
setxkbmap -option grp:ctrl_shift_toggle

to the user Xclients script.

Comment 6 Christoph Wickert 2010-11-26 00:35:52 UTC
Normally this should not be necessary but if, you can better drop a script in /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d/.

Can you please remove the setxkbmap call for now and test the update from 

Feedback is welcome!

Comment 7 sd.domrep 2010-11-26 14:15:27 UTC
This update did not make any difference.
After logout, login "setxkbmap -print" gives me:
xkb_keymap {
        xkb_keycodes  { include "evdev+aliases(qwerty)" };
        xkb_types     { include "complete"      };
        xkb_compat    { include "complete"      };
        xkb_symbols   { include "pc+us+ru:2+inet(evdev)"        }; <--- here should be the toggle
        xkb_geometry  { include "pc(pc102)"     };
Something removes it did not set up.

Just checked xfce4-xkb-plugin- on Rawhide - it works and after logout remembers layout settings.
