Different than default keyboard layout can't be used in login screen
of Ubuntu 17.04
Status in lightdm package in Ubuntu:
I upgraded from Ubuntu 16.04 to 16.10 and immediately from 16.10 to 17.04. I
had and also have SK and US keyboard layouts defined.
I noticed after boot in the login screen, for entering the password, only the
keyboard layout defined in /etc/default/keyboard, works (in my case it is US).
When I select different layout via indicator (I select SK keyboard layout),
only the one defined in the /etc/default/keyboard (US layout) is used.
Once I am logged in and use Ctrl+Alt+L for locking the screen, then all
layouts works. So the problem is only after boot and I noticed the problem is
also when switching to not logged other user.
Steps for reproducing:
1. Have installed Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and define SK and US layout via "Text
2. Upgrade from Ubuntu 16.04 LTS to 16.10 and immediately upgrade from 16.10
3. Reboot your PC and notice only one keyboard layout works in the login
screen (the layout which is defined in /etc/default/keyboard)
