Custom keyboard layout doesn't work
Submitted by Jiri Stransky
I have a custom keyboard layout (https://github.com/jistr/czenglish) and I'd like Gnome to use it. I set the dconf key org.gnome.desktop.input-sources.sources to "[('xkb', 'cen+nerd')]", which should be the Gnome 3.6 way to set a keyboard layout, but it doesn't work. If I add more layouts to the list, only the "stock" layouts get shown in the keyboard selection menu in panel, not my custom layout. Even if I don't use the variant and set it to just "[('xkb', 'cen')]", it still doesn't work.
The keyboard layout is installed into the system correctly. Running
setxkbmap -layout cen -variant nerd works well.
(Previously, with Gnome 3.4, I used the layout by setting dconf key org.gnome.libgnomekbd.keyboard.layouts to "['cen\tnerd']" and it worked well.)
