Hi everyone, thanks a lot for Manjaro, I love the fact you are testing it with multiple desktop UI and keep it relatively simple and un-bloated!
I just installed Manjaro Gnome, but I am already having issues with the
gnome-layout-switcher that comes out of the box with Manjaro Gnome: the layout is randomly changed to “Manjaro layout” (with the date to the right of the top bar) when I just want it to stay classic Gnome layout (date in the middle)
This happens usually at restart, (not always though) but also while I am using my laptop. I could not link it to something I do, it just randomly happens
So I uninstalled the
pacman -R, after making sure the layout was set to the classic Gnome. But then after restarting my laptop the dreadful Manjaro Gnome layout has been put back!
And this even if the
gnome-layout-switcher is now uninstalled! (so I guess I need to reinstall the layout-switcher to get the classic gnome layout back?)
So it makes me wonder what is doing this switch?
I could not find any issue or post related to this problem, I created an issue in the GitLab repo of the gnome-switcher app, but it does not seems really active: see gitlab manjaro org in the repo Chrysostomus/gnome-layout-switcher issue 22
Not sure if I am posting at the right place, let me know if this is not the right place neither!
I love Manjaro at the moment, but it’s really worrying to have those kind of changes done in the background without any control or oversight over them (I am having the same kind of recurrent silent override with shortcuts, not sure if it is due to Manjaro or Gnome though, will need to deeply investigate… There are a lot of issues about this though, seems like Gnome can’t help itself to mess peoples shortcuts!)
Any idea what those wild layouts changes are due to? How can it be fixed? Why Manjaro keeps doing it even if the gnome-layout-switcher is uninstalled?
My setup: Manjaro 21.2 and Gnome Shell 41.4 and Xorg (unfortunately Wayland can’t be used seriously as it doesn’t support screen sharing for most popular apps)
