[Bug 1246272] Re: Keyboard layout changing randomly


Also happens here! Im using Elementary OS, based on Ubuntu 14.04.
My Lenovo G40 has a BR layout keyboard that works fine until I bough a US layout mechanical keyboard, after that I cannot set the us layout as default in any way. It aways change to BR, after and after. A simple alt+tab is enough to reconfigure my keyboard settings.

I already tried to run:

* setxkbmap -rules evdev -model evdev -layout us -variant intl -option caps:ctrl_modifier
* gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.input-sources current 0
* sudo dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration

Every command works fine until I change the current windows, that
imediatly changes to br layout again. I was planing to go to Ubuntu, but
I see that problem is not a Elementary exclusivity.

Bug description:
  Just upgraded from 12.04 (raring) to 12.10 (saucy) and keyboard layout keeps changing from pt_br to what I think is en_us.
  It seems random so I don't know what trigger this, but sometimes just alt-tabbing is enough to mess with keyboard layout in one of the windows.
  I already removed the en_us from my keyboard sources, double checked the use of one source for all windows, and even removed accelerators to switch between layouts but none have worked.
