Description Couret Charles-Antoine 2011-11-12 07:35:43 EST
Description of problem:
I use 2 keymaps with my laptop : the fr-latin9 for my default keymap and fr-bépo keymap with an another keyboard in USB port.

I can switch with Gnome the keymap with an applet in panel. But This not works in two situations :
-If I unplug my trackball, I can't click in this applet. It's necessary to click with right button and select the keymap.

-If I lock my screen, the default keymap is fr-latin-9, even if I have selected bépo-keymap before. And if I click in the button in this screen connexion, the keymap not change but the button displays « fr2 », like I have selected the bépo keymap.

Expected results:

-I could click already in this applet and it's change the keymap.

Additional info:
I use Gnome 3.2 in restricted mode.

Do you use ibus while you indicate the keyboard status-icon instead of ibus one?
Do you install the latest ibus?

# yum install ibus
% rpm -q ibus
Comment 2 Couret Charles-Antoine 2011-11-14 13:00:37 EST
[root@DiNozzo ~]# rpm -q ibus

But, the status-icon is not ibus ? With « en », « fr », «fr2 » by way icon.
If it's not ibus, I'm sorry, but the bug is present for this component.

«fr2», the suffix is not implemented in ibus icon yet so I'd expect your icon would be gnome-settings-daemon's keyboard icon.

Why do you think so?
You could disable ibus with 'im-chooser' command and check if your problem could be happened without running ibus.
