Because of Sway/Wayalnd I've swtiched to sddm/lightdm.

Sway session remains is US kbd, even if I export my non US XKB_DEFAULT{x|y|z} variables before starting xdm service manually[EDIT 3] silly me to expect such a fix since ENV variables shouldn't be inherited after login.

Maybe the login kbd combo only covers login keyboard (e.g password typing)... [EDIT] Indeed!

Openrc here.

Any idea how to fix?
[EDIT] seems to be in the gentoo wiki. Ops my bad! I did it again...

[EDIT2] noob thought: seems like things are pushing towards systemd as far as DM are concerned ...

Thks 4 ur attention.
