Description Mike FABIAN 2013-09-19 03:36:18 EDT
In “gnome-control-center region”, there is the nice feature that one
can search in English always when adding input methods.  I.e. when
running in Japanese for example, one can still type “german” into
the search field to find the German keyboard, which is listed as ドイツ語.

That does not work when selecting keyboard layouts in anaconda.
One can only search for the strings exactly as they are listed,
not for the original English. One can only search for the translated

Therefore, is quite hard to find the ドイツ語(ドイツ語) keyboard, one
has to scroll through the huge list of layouts to find it. As no
Japanese input method is available at that stage, searching for ドイツ
to find the translation ドイツ語(ドイツ語) is not possible.

Maybe the search could be made to match also if the input matches
the untranslated string so that typing “german” also matches
ドイツ語(ドイツ語), just as it does in “gnome-control-center region”?

See screenshots ...

Created attachment 799764 [details]

Left: I entered nothing into the search field but scrolled down the list
      until I found ドイツ語(ドイツ語)

Centre: I typed “german” into the search field. It matches some
      entries which happen to contain “German” untranslated, but
      it does not match the “main” German keyboard layout
      ドイツ語(ドイツ語) because this is 100% translated.

Right: Searching for “deutsch” finds nothing (of course ...)

The “add input source” dialog in “gnome-control-center region”.

Left: searching for “german” matches ドイツ語, although the
    translated string contains no “german” anymore, only the
    untranslated string contains “german”

Centre: searching for ドイツ does match ドイツ語, i.e. one can
    of course search for the translated string. But this won’t work
    in anaconda because there is no input method available to type

Right: searching for “deutsch” returns nothing (of course ...)
