Bug Description

I noticed my keyboard was not working properly as typing for example shift + , would give me the character _ instead of the expected quotation mark ?

I opened a terminal and typed 'sudo service gdm restart'

After that I was in the lobby but my user wasn't available for quick login so I had to go through the 'not listed?' option typing my username and password. After that bug splat informed that this crashed had happened.

I am running Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS
