Most of the times (but not all the times, that's the confusing part) when I start my laptop, the keyboard mapping will be English, although I set German as default and it actually shows German in the top right panel. It will work after I change the keyboard layout and change it back to German, but that's annoying.

My /etc/default/keyboard shows


Does anyone have experienced a similar problem and solved it?

System: Lenovo Ideapad G580, Ubuntu 13.10
