I'm running Slackware on my main workstation, where I have a
90-keyboard-layout.conf file in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d, and it looks like

Section "InputClass"
	Identifier "keyboard-all"
	MatchIsKeyboard "on"
	MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
	Driver "evdev"
	Option "XkbLayout" "ch"
	Option "XkbVariant" "fr"
	Option "XkbOptions" "terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp"

But then, I'm also running Xfce on this machine, so I don't know if on
the CentOS machine, the problem is related to localectl, to X.org or to

I tried to replace the CentOS configuration stub with the one I have on
the Slackware machine, but to no avail. The keyboard is still US. While
it's not a big deal, of course, I'd rather avoid having to reconfigure
all my users' keyboard layout by hand.
