Bug Description

it seems that the info is filled by the lightdm server, hence this bug report on lightdm.

In the indicator, there are three french keyboard proposed, but none of them contains the default "french keyboard" we are using in ubuntu. we are user the "french (variant)" keyboard called fr, oss.

In the indicator, we don't get access to this variant.

This is because we currently only pull top-level layouts from xkl, using xkl_config_registry_foreach_layout. We probably need to recurse on each layout with xkl_config_registry_foreach_layout_variant.
