I am using Ubuntu 14.04, Gnome fallback mode (compiz), the input sources in Text Entry are English and Russian.

How can I get these layouts programmatically or at least in the console?

I tried XkbGetNames and got the following results:

console in English: return only English
console in Russian : return English, Russian

I got the same result with ./xkblayout-state print "%N" and setxkbmap -query | grep layout.

My main problem is if the console is in English, it is not returning both layouts, why and how do I fix it!
