Unhappy No keyboard layouts in Gnome [CentOS]


I set three keyboard layouts in Gnome. I added in the panel the keyboard indicator and then added the other two layouts.
The next time I booted my PC, when loading Gnome the following error appeard and keeps appearing every time I load Gnome:

Error activating XKB configuration.
Probably internal X server problem.

X server version data:
The X.Org Foundation

If you report this situation as a bug, please include:
- The result of xprop -root | grep XKB
- The result of gconftool-2 -R /desktop/gnome/peripherals/keyboard/xkb

So I add now the results of the commands there:
[boby@localhost ~]$ xprop -root | grep XKB
_XKB_RULES_NAMES_BACKUP(STRING) = "xorg", "pc105", "us", "", ""
_XKB_RULES_NAMES(STRING) = "xorg", "pc105", "us", "", ""
[boby@localhost ~]$ gconftool-2 -R /desktop/gnome/peripherals/keyboard/xkb
 layouts = [us,de       basic,ro        ro_us]
 model = pc105
 overrideSettings = false
 options = [grp grp:alts_toggle]
 update_handlers = []
I cannot use any keyboard layout.
Thank you for any help!

Kind regards, Boby.
