Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-settings-daemon

I want to have both "Israel" layout and "USA International with AltGr dead keys"(I need the dead keys), switching between them using a single alt-shift.

Tried this method:
System->Preferences->Layouts->Add the "USA International AltGr" and remove "USA".

Result: at reboot USA shows up again, as if it's a dependency of "USA International AltGr". No way of removing USA and keeping "USA International AltGr".

I switch between "USA International AltGr" and "Israel" quite often and it's a pain to have another layout stuck between them so I always have to press alt-shift a second time to really make the switch.

Have tried "Apply System Wide" to no avail.

To illustrate I have made two screenshots:
This what I try to set up:

And this is what it reverts to after every boot:

I am using Ubuntu Maverick 64-bit fully updated as of October 12th, 2010.

should look like:

or whatever is your preferred layout."

Bug still in 11.04. Said .dmrc workaround does not work for me. I assume no further answer will be gotten from GNOME as this is fixed in GNOME3.
