115 It is recommended to have a dedicated user and group to take
116 control of the <command>gdm</command> daemon after it is
117 started. Issue the following commands as the

127 <para>
128 The <application>gdm</application> login screen is managed by
129 <application>gnome-shell</application>, which relies on the
130 <command>systemd-localed</command> daemon to get the system
131 settings. Since this daemon is not present on this system, a
132 <command>sed</command> is applied in the <xref
133 linkend="gnome-shell"/> instructions to change this behavior,
134 but then <application>gdm</application> uses the system settings,
135 which default to a US <quote>qwerty</quote> keyboard layout. This may
136 be an inconvience to enter a password when the machine keyboard
137 has a different layout. One possibility is to use the screen-keyboard
138 from the accessibility menu. Another possibility is to change the
139 defaults at compile time, by creating the following file:
140 </para>
141
142<screen><userinput>cat &gt; data/dconf/defaults/01-keyboard &lt;&lt; EOF
143<literal>[org/gnome/desktop/input-sources]

145EOF</userinput></screen>
146
147 <para>
148 where <replaceable>layout</replaceable> should be replaced with
149 the acronym for your keyboard layout (one of the filenames in
