patch

It's currently impossible to configure the keyboard layout in gdm because gnome-shell forces it to use systemd localed which we don't have and gdm ends up falling back to a compiled-in default of US qwerty.  This patch lets gdm obtain input source settings from dconf.

Alternate patch (derive layout from locale)

Here is an alternate patch which does not depend on dconf settings but instead derives the keyboard layout from the locale.

First patch (Tijl Coosemans) failed.
"Hunk #1 failed at 3"

Second patch (Thomas Quinot) applies successfully, 
but has no effect on gdm keyboard layout.
