Phantom Dvorak layout in Plasma

Hi all,

I have a pretty fresh install of Manjaro-KDE (/lost+found date is 2023-01-11), and ever since my very first boot (to the best of my recollection), I’ve had an issue with a phantom (unwanted) Dvorak keyboard layout popping up.

The first symptom is that the keyboard layout switcher would pop up on the panel, even though I don’t have any alternate layouts installed. When I right click on the keyboard layout icon in the systray, it shows English (US) and English (Dvorak). when I select “Configure Keyboard Layout” [widget], then click on “Layouts: [Configure…],” it only shows English (US) in the Layouts tab. No Dvorak.

If I manually add Dvorak and then delete it, the layout switcher will go away, but then comes back by itself.

The big problem I’m having is trying to run KSP, and it’s setting itself up as Dvorak, which really messes with the keybinds.

Any ideas? I’m running KDE-X11 and I just updated all of the packages today (and logged out and back in, just for good measure).

I’ve been able to get things set up ok for now, but it does keep popping up time and again.
