I have both fr and eng keyboard maps added in the keyboard settings. My default one is fr.

When I boot up, the logon screen shows, as expected, fr on the top right corner. But even though it shows fr, the eng keyboard map is in use when I type in my password.

This behaviour only shows up when booting up, not when logging on back from suspended.

How do I force the right keyboard layout when I boot up?

(Reproduced the same issue on my laptop)

This is a known bug in Fedora 28. You can track the bug here and download a patched gnome-shell here.

After installing the RPM and rebooting my machine, I no longer had this issue.

dnf install
