Details

With many thanks to Vratislav Podzimek, who wrote the fix, this update fixes system-config-keyboard to read and write the keyboard layout configuration via systemd-localed - and so makes it actually work again. Previously, it would set the layout for the current X session but it would not write the configuration correctly, so the change would not survive a reboot.

Note that system-config-keyboard reads and sets the system-wide keyboard layout. If you are using GNOME, your user session has its own keyboard layout configuration that overrides the system-wide configuration and can be set through the GNOME control center. If you are using KDE, you can choose to either use the system-wide configuration or use a KDE-specific configuration in the control center.

Bugs Fixed
882159 - system-config-keyboard should read and write configuration via localed (at present it is completely broken)
