The current karmic gdm still has hal code, and depends on it. For once this is the code to determine the current keyboard layout (Ubuntu/Fedora patch), and also .

This bug was fixed in the package gdm - 2.28.1-0ubuntu3

gdm (2.28.1-0ubuntu3) lucid; urgency=low

  * Replace 01_default_keyboard_layout_hal.patch with
    01_default_keyboard_layout.patch which uses libxklavier instead of hal to
    read the default keyboard layout from Drop hal build and binary
    dependencies. (LP: #418981)
  * 16_gdmserver_user_manager.patch, 99_autoreconf.patch: Updated.
