I'm using archlinux with budgie desktop and gnome-screensaver version

This problem still persists. I can't switch languages in the unlock
screen. I have to power down my machine because I'm unable to enter my
password. Any help would be appreciated, feel free to ask for whatever
steps I need to provide to help with debugging this very annoying issue.

  adding keyboard layouts no longer seems to update xkb correctly

Status in gnome-screensaver package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released
Status in gnome-screensaver source package in Saucy:
  Fix Released

Bug description:

  * Impact: layouts are missing from the unlock screen which might makes
  difficult to unlock

  * Test case:

  Through gnome-control-center, add a few different XKB input sources
  (e.g., US, French, German, Russian), then lock the screen.

  Expected results:

  The lock screen dialog keyboard switching indicator should cycle
  through all of the XKB (non-IBus) input sources.

  Actual results:

  It only allows cycling through at most two XKB layouts, the currently
  active one, and the US layout.

  * Regression potential:

  The changes affect the list from which gnome-screensaver allows
  cycling, and may affect which layouts are available for unlocking the


  I'm not sure if this is caused by gnome-control-center, or ibus 1.5,
  but in saucy, adding or modifying the keyboard layouts doesn't seem to
  properly update xkb any longer.

  For example, I can have both French (Canada) and English (US)
  configured, but xkl_config_rec_get_from_server() will only return 'ca'
  and xkl_engine_get_num_groups() will return 1, instead of 2.

  I believe this is also causing the keyboard layouts to not appear on
  the login screen.
