I am trying to switch my keyboard to Russian, but the layout doesn’t change at all. I created a new layout for Russian Phonetic in: System Settings -> (Hardware ->) Input Devices -> Keyboard -> Layout and switched with ctrl+alt+k the layout. But nothing happens. I still have my German (latin alphabet) layout. Flags are enabled, too, so I am sure that the right layout is choosen.
If I change it with “setxkbmap ru phonetic”, it works perfectly, and I can write with cyrillic letters. I tried to install gxkb and put it in the autostart, but after every reboot I need to restart gxkb in order to have the cyrillic letters, again.
Journalctl tells me:
kdeinit5: org.kde.kcm_keyboard: Current group number 2 is outside of current layout list ("de", "ru(phonetic)")
I have no idea what’s wrong. On my laptop with kde5 and antergos it works perfectly. Other languages seem to work, too. Removing the German layout and using only the Russian layout didn’t work either.
