Default Keyboard layout changes on applying updates!

Hello All,

I have added the keyboard layout indicator on the top panel, because I
had problems getting double and single quotes to work (type) in
gnome-terminal. From various posts on the internet, I figured it was a
problem with the keyboard layout. Initially, it showed USA. I clicked on
it and it changed to USA2. Gnome-terminal started working properly. A
little while later the panel showed that updates are available for
Ubuntu. I updated the system, only to find that after the updates were
applied, the keyboard layout had changed back to USA. Quite expectedly,
I could not type quotes at the gnome-terminal (the same terminal has
been open all this while).

It seems that applying Ubuntu updates resets the keyboard layout
settings. Is it not a bug? Is there a way to make it stay permanently as
USA2 layout? (because that is what works for me).

Thanks in advance,
Ajay

Hi People,

The problem is solved by something I should have figured much earlier. I
removed all the layouts that I had configured, except the one which
works for me. Now, the system has no option to switch the layout to.
Hence, it continues to stay in the same layout even after upgrades.

Thanks anyways,
Ajay
