I managed to make it work also with its default layout; here is what I

- I opened the keyboard preference panel from gnome and added the U. S.
layout to the layout tab.

It still did not work.

- So I moved the U. S. layout to the top of the list in the layout tab.

Now onboard also works when the default layout is chosen in its

In other words: 
It seems to me that the default layout of onboard does not correspond to the default layout of gnome. But it seems to be the U. S. layout. This is misleading. These might improve its behaviour: Either rename it U. S. layout or make it correspond to gnome's default layout. 

Moreover, onboard should catch that error: if the layout chosen in the
settings of onboard is not present, it should open a dialogue informing
the user of the missing layout and open the settings dialogue to let him
choose another layout. In any case it should not simply crash.

Thanks for reading this and hopefully provide a solution.
