  [SRU]Wrong keyboard layout active after booting into desktop

Status in ibus package in Ubuntu:
Status in ibus source package in Trusty:

Bug description:

  When first boot into Unity desktop, English keyboard layout is active
  while all other parts of the system language settings are set to
  another language (e.g. German).

  The bug is properly addressed in newer upstream releases in Vivid, but
  the changes is too intrusive and not suitable for being back ported in
  SRU. And changing the default to use system keyboard layout solves the

  [Test Case]

  1. Set the system language to something other than English, e.g. German.
  2. Create a new user, log in to the Unity desktop of the new user.
  3. Check the keyboard layout, it should be German instead of English.

  [Regression Potential]

  Since this changes the default value of the keyboard layout settings
  by using system defined as default, it avoids using ibus's built-in
  keyboard layout related functionality, so that this could be a
  regression for users rely on this certain behavior (e.g. use English
  keyboard while want to keep the system language settings to German),
  but such behavior is not expected for normal usage.
