  • What keyboard layouts do you use? Oct 7, 2013 at 10:03
  • Must be a bug... I haven't be able to change my layout in the last 2-3 days, and no indicator is visible too. Don't know what updates caused the breaking though... Is your layout indicator visible in the login screen?

For example, if you use English (US) - us and Kurdish (Iran, Arabic-Latin) - ir\tku_ara layouts, just run the following command in terminal:

gsettings get org.gnome.libgnomekbd.keyboard layouts ['us', 'ir\tku_ara']

and keyboard layout indicator should appear.

Some explanations: the keyboard layout indicator it doesn't show if you have set only one keyboard layout, but when you set more than one keyboard layout, this will appear.
