Ubuntu 11.10 uses a new log-in manager called LightDM. The "Simple LightDM Manager" program allows you to change settings for LightDM, but it only supports changes to the background image and logo right now.
Unfortunately, you may need to make these keyboard changes individually within each user account. To do so:
- Log into your Ubuntu account.
- Right-click your username in the upper-right corner of the top toolbar on your screen.
- Look for and right-click "System Settings". If it isn't on the menu, right-click directly to the right of your username on the toolbar. "System Settings" should be listed at the top of this menu.
- Select "Keyboard" in the window.
- Select "Layout Settings" in the lower-left corner of the next window.
- Choose your settings. Click "Options" in the lower-right corner to further customize your keyboard settings. If you'd like, you can choose to program individual key combinations to automatically change the keyboard layout/settings for you.
If your keyboard layout change isn't working properly, you may need to use the command-line to fix it. This link may be helpful:
