Ah! Hum... that's a good sign, I guess :-)

- For the non-visible indicator problem:

Run this from a terminal (don't worry, it is harmless, you are only 
requesting for a variable value):

gsettings get org.gnome.libgnomekbd.indicator show-flags

And put here the result.

- For the layout issue:

Try by ading a different layout (e.g., "International with dead keys 
AltGr") and check if that works by pressing "AltGr+E" which should return 
an accented "é".
