     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]
     144sources=[('xkb','<replaceable>layout</replaceable>')]</literal>
     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
     150        <filename class="directory">/usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols</filename>).
     151      </para>
