Description

cinnamon login manager keyboard layout.

When setting a german keyboard layout in login manager cinnamon does not use this layout.

I currently do not know of a way to get cinnamon to use a german keyboard layout.

Please also have a look at my other ticket with number 903.

This is just like the KDE issue in #903: Cinnamon has it's own Keyboard module/daemon(s) (called IBUS and GNOME settings daemon) that is overwriting the current system keyboard layout on login.

We are still looking for a way to disable these two services by default: but are having issues finding where the startup settings get saved (replacing ~/.config/dconf/user does not seem to make any difference).

Workaround: go to Cinnamon settings -> Startup Programs and disable IBUS and GNOME settings services. Then logout/login.

Disabled these service by default now (impacts all GNOME derivatives - Cinnamon, GNOME3, MATE).
