Description of problem:
while installing TC-6 from live CD, on first installation screen i could see 'US' keyboard but i could not change it to other layout
Please find screen shot attached
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Boot Fedora from live CD, and on the first screen try to change US layout which is selected as default
In that first “welcome” screen, the only entry field is the field
below the language list where one can type a string to find
the desired language faster instead of just scrolling.
As soon as a language is selected and one proceeds to the next screen,
the default keyboard for the selected language/territory is
selected automatically according to what langtable returns.
For the "us" on the first “welcome” screen, langtable is not involved,
this is always just "us".
What else could it be?
Maybe somebody with a very different hardware keyboard like a French
AZERTY layout may have some problems to use the search field in that case.
But how could that be improved?
Showing a complicated dialog to select a keyboard layout only to make
searching the language in that rather simple list a bit easier
seems a bit overkill.
So I think it is OK as it is.
But certainly it has nothing to do with langtable, so I assign it back
to email@example.com to decide what to do.
