Description polemon 2010-11-04 05:30:38 UTC
Description of problem:
I use "USA International (AltGr dead keys)" as my keyboard layout.
This is the only one, that I've set in System > Preferences > Keyboard > Layouts.
After loging out and loging back in, I have another keyboard layout added to the list: "USA International (with dead keys)" (they're not equal), and that one is set as primary one.
When I remove this layout, so the only remaining one is "USA International (AltGr dead keys)", it's all over again, when I log out and back in.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
FC14 *and* FC13

How reproducible:
I had this issue with FC13 and now in FC14 it's still there.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to System > Preferences > Keyboard > Layouts.
2. Select "USA International (AltGr dead keys)" as your one and only layout.
3. Log out and back in.
4. Check keyboard layouts again.
Actual results:
The layout "USA International (with dead keys)" reappears and is set as primary after loging in.

Expected results:
The layout I've selected ("USA International (AltGr dead keys)") should remain the only one.

Additional info:
I have my own .xmodmaprc, but even without that file, I still get the same problem.

Comment 1 Fedora End Of Life 2012-08-16 18:54:51 UTC
This message is a notice that Fedora 14 is now at end of life. Fedora 
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 14. It is 
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no 
longer maintained.  At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '14' have been closed as WONTFIX.

(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this 
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen 
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 14 reached end of life. If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on 
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that 
version of Fedora.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here:
