[Bug 1725676] Re: Keyboard language


Was it a version upgrade (from 17.04 to 17.10) or a fresh install?

In any case, and if I understand it correctly, the GDM greeter, which is
the default greeter in Ubuntu 17.10, allows you to use the keyboard
layout(s) stated in the /etc/default/keyboard file. That file probably
includes this line:


while you would like that line to read:


or maybe


If you - as in the latter case - state more than one layout, the GDM
greeter will provide a keyboard layout switcher.

So I guess you need to fix this somehow, maybe by starting your computer
with a bootable USB stick.
