[arch-general] Keyboard Problem in Mate Arch Linux for the Last Few Days

Hello Friends in Arch-General Mailing List

I am using Arch Linux for the last six months or so. Before that I was
using Redhat and Fedora for 15 years or so.

I am a Mate user and I use my keyboard to write both English and Bangla.

For the last few days when I am booting into Mate, a problem window is
coming up -- I have attached the file kbd-text-s.png.

The output of the commands in kbd-text.png is here:

dd at ru-al ~]$ xprop -root | grep XKB
_XKB_RULES_NAMES_BACKUP(STRING) = "evdev", "pc105", "us", "", ""
_XKB_RULES_NAMES(STRING) = "evdev", "pc105", "us", "", "grp:lctrl_rctrl_switch"

[dd at ru-al ~]$ gsettings list-keys org.mate.peripherals-keyboard-xkb.kbd


And usually I change the layout from one to the other (English and
Bangla) whenever I need them -- from
System--Preferences--Hardware--Keyboard, as shown in kbd-layout-s.png
attached with this mail.

But now the keyboard is always English, I cannot change it to Bangla
India Probhat.

I have never filed a bug in Arch Linux and so I am first reporting here.

Any help is welcome.

Thanking you.
