I’m pretty new in Opensuse, but not new in Linux. Did a fresh install of Leap 15.3 and I can’t set my keyboard layout.
I need Polish programmer qwerty layout (the most popular, typical one used by 99% of people here).
Currently when I type Polish diacritics (with letf alt + letter) I’m triggering various DE keyboard shortcuts instead (lock screen, display “start” menu, open Dolphin).
localectl System Locale: LANG=pl_PL.UTF-8 VC Keymap: Pl02 # this is incorrectly set by Yast (should be pl) but changing it didn't help either X11 Layout: pl X11 Model: pc105 X11 Options: terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp

I initially started with KDE but it had exactly the same issue. Removed it and installed GNOME, no avail.
I installed briefly IBus daemon and IBus to deselect “Use system keyboard layout”. This doesn’t do anything.
YaST2/Set system keyboard doesn’t help.
YaST2/Language set to Polish, field “adjust keyboard layout to language” grayed out.
I found in some official guide that I’m supposed to set the layout from DE but that doesn’t work.
This whole IBus thingy also confuses me. I don’t have it installed, but I saw some libraries of it were used by KDE.
Also not quite sure if Wayland doesn’t go into the way. I’ve been using Xorg system before.
