[SOLVED] Different keyboard layout on very first Gnome login

Recently, I got the issue that the keyboard layout is different on the very first Gnome login after the boot process. Normally, I would use the German QWERTZ-keyboard layout. But on the very first login, it is a QWERTY keyboard. I suspect the unknown keyboard is an US keyboard layout as I set my locale to en_US. However, the US keyboard layout is not installed on my system and after I logged into my desktop the keyboard layout immediately changes to the German one. Even if I log out from Gnome, the German keyboard retains on the login screen. The US keyboard only appears on the very first login.

However, the US keyboard layout is not installed on my system

Sure?

ls /usr/share/{kbd/keymaps/i386/qwerty,X11/xkb/symbols}/us*

I assume we're talking about GDM?

Use https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Xorg/K … _localectl since I'm not sure GDM/wayland will interpret anything else.

Thanks for your solution. The localectl command did the trick.
I was sure the US keyboard would not be on my system since it was not listed in the gnome-control-center.
