I based my operating system configuration on
gnu/system/examples/desktop.tmpl in the Guix tree, and was surprised
that my dvorak keyboard is in effect everywhere except at the GDM
greeter screen (where it is QWERTY).

Here's the full config:

  ;; Choose US English keyboard layout.  The "altgr-intl"
  ;; variant provides dead keys for accented characters.
  (keyboard-layout (keyboard-layout "dvorak"))

  ;; Partition mounted on /boot/efi.

               (target "/boot/efi")
