I am now using Ubuntu with it's native window manager, but I want to use fluxbox, because of the performance and because I used it before and I liked it... But, for some reason, fluxbox on this new computer of mine changes the keyboard layout! I want it to be Croatian. Also, on the login screen the keyboard layout is also different, only when I login to Ubuntu or Ubuntu 2D I actually get my keyboard, and it's a bit frustrating!

fluxbox usually does not change the keyboard layout, external programs do. do you start such programs? – akira May 8 '12 at 12:03
I've set Gedit and the terminal to run on the startup, I doubt that they induce such changes. Should I try to start it without them? – jcora May 8 '12 at 12:06
if you mean .fluxbox/startup then yes, try without them. you could also add something like setxkbmap croat in .fluxbox/startup. – akira May 8 '12 at 12:12
No, it is still the same... – jcora May 8 '12 at 12:43
and when you execute setxkbmap croat after fluxbox is done? which version of fluxbox? – akira May 9 '12 at 7:53

I have installed a new version of Ubuntu, and all keyboard problems are now solved!
