gdm-new always use usa keyboard layout
 
Hi all,

I'm testing new gdm (2.24) from PPA on jaunty alpha 4. I use a french
keyboard layout.

When gdm start or restart after a logout, the layout is the good one :
french as configured during jaunty installation. But after the login,
the environnement variable GDM_KEYBOARD_LAYOUT is set to "us" and in
gnome-keyboard-properties, there is an USA keyboard. I have to set
"reset to default" in gnome-keyboard-properties to get back the correct
layout.
Otherwise in works well.

Here is my small feedback.

Thanks

Thank you for this report! It could be

http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=561771

or

http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=556241

but I think they aren't quite the same as your's.
gnome-settings-daemon reads $GDM_KEYBOARD_LAYOUT, so it seems gdm sets
that wrongly. Could you please create a new bug report at

http://bugzilla.gnome.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=gdm

and describe the problem there? Then this will be discussed directly
with upstream.

Thank you!

Martin

Not sure what info hal has about the keyboard, but it certainly doesn't
know about the layout chosen by the user in the combobox of gdm :-)

well, with recent xorg hal sets all the systemwide kbd settings (the
stuff formerly done in xorg.conf) so imho the hal data should be the
default value for GDM_KEYBOARD_LAYOUT in any case ... unless thats
overridden by a user setting indeed ...

BTW, please note that with our current (2.20) gdm, we are not using
$GDM_KEYBOARD_LAYOUT at all.
