12.10gdmgnomekeyboard-layout

I am using 12.10 with Gnome 3. I changed LightDM to GDM. When I boot up keyboard layout changes to default US layout. When I add another layout to end of list at Region settings my selected layout becomes active. What should I do ?

I also have the same problem. I did a lot of research, but I have not found a solution for me. Instead, for many people, this was the solution:

  1. Open Terminal
  2. Type sudo vim /etc/default/keyboard
  3. The values ​​within the file should be as follows:

    XKBMODEL="pc105"
    XKBLAYOUT="it"
    XKBVARIANT=""
    XKBOPTIONS=""
    
  4. XKBLAYOUT is the code of your keyboard layout. Type man xkeyboard-config for shows the codes for keyboard model and layout.

  5. exit

Reboot and check. I hope this is the right solution for you too ;)
