Dear Aere,

I thank you for your suggestion. I just enabled this applet alongside my 'IBus
is an intelligent input bus for Linux/Unix.'. It shows the flag of my country.
Maybe it could indicate if anything changes despite the fact that I have only
one keyboard layout enabled.

I'll let you guys know if the problem persist.

Best regards,
