Not sure if this would apply to this version, but on VL7A1 I commented out the line with "xmodmap ~/.Xmodmap" in .bashrc and it prevents the keyboard map from changing when I open a konsole.
Hello, i commented the line mentioned and made some changes on ~/.bash_profile to:
# LOCALES ADDITIONS MADE BY THE VL GUI INSTALLER
`setxkbmap -model evdev -layout us -variant intl`
# END OF MODIFICATIONS BY THE VL GUI INSTALLER
Now US_INTL works on all aplications (and konsole) without KDE Layouts.
Thanks vectors !
