Bug Description

[ Description ]

The on-screen keyboard in Gnome Shell is not localized (at least for some locales), and always displays a QWERTY keyboard, independently of the selected layout.

See upstream issue https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gnome-shell/issues/997

[ Test case ]

- Setting locale to a French one should change the layout accordinly

[ Regression potential ]

French layouts are not working as expected
