  [master] system keyboard layout not honored

Status in sddm package in Ubuntu:
Status in xorg-server package in Ubuntu:
Status in sddm package in Mandriva:
  In Progress

Bug description:
  I'm on a fresh install of Kubuntu:
  Description:    Ubuntu 15.04
  Release:        15.04

  I chose German as installation language, de with nodeadkeys as
  keyboard and locale is set to de_DE.UTF-8.

  The console uses the correct keyboard, however when logging into sddm,
  the keyboard layout is set to US.

  SDDM doesn't seem to honour the keyboard configured during

  SDDM installed is:
    Installiert:           0.11.0-0ubuntu10
    Installationskandidat: 0.11.0-0ubuntu10
   *** 0.11.0-0ubuntu10 0
          500 http://de.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ vivid/universe amd64 Packages
          100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

  I believe it's a bug since the keyboard layout at login window after
  installing as described above should be the default system one, german
  in the above case.

  I have tried all sorts of ways (including some ugly hacks) to get this
  resolved on a previous installation but didn't find a way. Considering
  the many moving parts to get the login manager up and running, I'm
  aware this might be filed against the wrong package. It might even be
  an installer bug.
