Description Alexander van Loon 2014-01-23 22:40:39 UTC
At the start of the installation Anaconda asks for the language to be used. If English is chosen, US English will be the default keyboard layout. Adding another layout (US English international with dead keys in my case) and then removing US English does not make Anaconda completely forget about US English. If logging in to the user account for the first time after the installation, Anaconda again offers a choice between the user-chosen layout and US English. The layout chosen by the user is default though. Removing US English at this point will be definite, except for GDM. If you reboot after the first login, you can notice that GDM still offers a choice between the user-chosen layout (which is the default) and US English. Of course Anaconda should forget the suggested layout it chooses for the installation right away if the user adds another layout and removes the suggested layout. I've seen this occur on two separate PC's on which I installed the Fedora 20 Desktop edition.
Comment 1 Martin Kolman 2014-01-24 12:21:16 UTC
For some languages we automatically include the English layout, as this seems to be the expected behavior based on user feedback. I think we do this at least for Russian, not sure about French. There might be also some issues with LUKS passphrase entry and console layouts.
Comment 2 Vratislav Podzimek 2014-01-24 12:37:06 UTC
Could you please provide the /etc/vconsole.conf and /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/00-keyboard.conf file from those systems? I'd swear the code in the installer does exactly what you are describing as a desired behaviour. Maybe something else (GDM?) is adding the second layout.
Comment 3 Alexander van Loon 2014-01-24 15:01:40 UTC
The files are identical on both machines. Contents of the /etc/vconsole.conf file: KEYMAP=us-intl FONT=latarcyrheb-sun16 Contents of the /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/00-keyboard.conf file: # Read and parsed by systemd-localed. It's probably wise not to edit this file # manually too freely. Section "InputClass" Identifier "system-keyboard" MatchIsKeyboard "on" Option "XkbLayout" "us" Option "XkbVariant" "intl" EndSection

GDM, please reassing to a different component, if GDM has nothing to do with keyboard layout configuration in the GDM session.
Comment 5 Fedora End Of Life 2015-05-29 10:38:49 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 20 is nearing its end of life. Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 20. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '20'. Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version. Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not able to fix it before Fedora 20 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above. Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete.
Comment 6 Fedora End Of Life 2015-06-29 14:42:25 UTC
Fedora 20 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-06-23. Fedora 20 is no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug. If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this bug. Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
