|Summary||0014176: gdm login screen keyboard layout|
|Description||I have fresh installed CentOS 7.4.1708 with Gnome desktop and russian locale choosen during setup. And I see following gdm behavior on login screen.|
I have the keyboard layout indicator on top right of the screen. If I click on it I get the drop down menu with two languages, en and ru, can choose any and keyboard layout changes accordingly.
And if I try switch keyboard layout by pressing Alt-Shift, the layout changes but the state of indicator - not. It responds only on mouse.
I noticed one more strange thing. If I consistently press Alt-Shift several times the layout changes as follows:
It looks like I have one english layout and two russian.
|Steps To Reproduce||During install CentOS 7.4.1708 select russian locale and "Gnome Desktop" software.|
On first login select "Нет в списке?" ("Not listed?" in russian) to get input box on login screen.
Type some letters. You'll see russian characters.
Press Alt-Shift to switch keyboard to english.
Type some letters. You'll see russian again.
Press Alt-Shift once more.
Type some letters. You'll see english characters. But keyboard layout indicator on top right conner still "ru"
|Additional Information||I was looking for solution and and saw references on /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/00-keyboard.conf file. Here is my and it looks good:|
Option "XkbLayout" "ru,us"
Option "XkbVariant" ","
Option "XkbOptions" "grp:alt_shift_toggle"
