Description Armijn Hemel 2006-10-31 16:28:17 EST
Description of problem: Right now (FC6 release) when chosing the keyboard layout, the keyboard that fits the locale is chosen. This is not always the wisest choice. For example, the Dutch keyboard layout is not used that much, most systems sold here use US keyboard layout. Since many users don't know the difference it might be a good idea to show a picture of a keyboard, or some representation of a keyboard, which depicts the keyboard layout for that language, or highlights keys in the picture with which you can recognize a certain keyboard. This is just a suggestion, feel free to implement, adapt or ignore :) Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: n/a Steps to Reproduce: 1. n/a 2. 3. Actual results: n/a Expected results: n/a Additional info:

The problem with doing something like this traditionally has been the lack of available images
Comment 2 Tim Mayberry 2006-10-31 21:00:44 EST
gnome-keyboard-preferences can display many different keyboard layouts. I think it does it using a library called libkbdraw although I'm not too sure about that. Perhaps using that, or generating static images from that is an option?

If system-config-keyboard supports this, anaconda will be able to make use of it fairly easily. We just wrap the screen it provides.

gnome-keyboard-preferences should be used instead.
