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".
