Each time I reboot my system, the keyboard layout is falling back to US layout even though I want it to be in French layout. This is my default value and this is also the one that is ticked in the keyboard layout menu from the tray. I just need to click once again on the French icon for the layout to get it to work properly but this is quite annoying.
Did someone have the same problem and found a solution? It is apparently a non-unique case since there is already a bug report for this (see this bug report). I am using Ubuntu 13.10.
