Is there a workaround for this bug? "Allow different layouts for individual windows " is a pretty useful option.

I installed kbdd and it does the job. /Just thought I should share with the people who have the same problem/

@Chavdar,

Hi, could you please share information how to configure kbdd to have different layouts for individual windows.
I've installed kbdd but looks like it don't work correctly.

Thanks!

Hey, I have installed it and it started working out of the box. Actually
I am using Arch LInux with Pantheon DE and this could be the reason why
it's working. Are you sure the daemon is running? Does `pgrep kbdd`
produce anything :?
You can try these packages also:

aur/kbdd 0.7-3 (21) [installed]
     Simple daemon and library to make per window layout.
aur/perwindowlayoutd 0.6-2 (10)
     Keeps per window keyboard layout under X11
aur/kbdd-git 20120505-2 (9)
     Simple daemon and library to make per window layout.
aur/kbdd-latest-git 228.32fe294-1 (1)
     Simple daemon to make per window keyboard layout
But I am not 100% sure on where to get them. I don't have elementary now
to test kbdd :/ Sorry.

I hope I helped!
