I got a bit annoyed with Gnome 3.36 lock screen behavior, but I cannot find any specification or document that would describe the intended behavior in this case. Please help me figure out if this behavior was intended intended or a bug.
GNOME 3.36.3 allows to set a different set of input languages for the Login Screen. I put only English there and it works (passwords are always entered in English) but only when I login after a reboot (aka Login Screen).
When in the Lock Screen after locking the screen, this language setting has no effect. It seems that Lock screen (gnome-screensaver) uses last active window’s language (keyboard layout) instead of default keyboard language.
- Is it the intended behavior that Lock Screen does not honor this setting for the Login Screen?
- Is there any update coming that will fix this issue?
- Is there a workaround for this issue?
