Thank you for your bug report. You probably mean "lock screen" rather than "login screen", that should be addressed by the work on https://code.launchpad.net/~attente/indicator-keyboard/switch-layout-on-lock/+merge/213737

  * If an IBus input source is active when the session is locked, switch
    to another non-IBus one instead. (LP: #1301860)

Hi, the fix works if user has non-IBus entry in addition to user's preferred IBus engine. However on clean install of trusty, only one entry "Japanese(Anthy)" is registered automatically in Japanese case. This behaviour is not sufficient for users, IMHO. I also posted a comment to Bug #1291302 which might be a duplicate of this bug.
