Description Christian Rose 2000-06-29 13:53:38 EDT
Wouldn't it be nice if the default selected keyboard layout in the Keyboard
selection box was chosen based upon what installation language I selected
in the screen before? Right now, even if I'm using the installer
in Swedish, it defaults to "us" keyboard layout, although there is probably
a very large chance that I as an user
would want "se-latin1" in most cases, given my selection of language.

I think that making an intelligent choice in the keyboard configuration
based on what language the user previously chose and selecting that
keyboard layout as default would probably be a nice addition. (Note that
I'm not advocating entirely skipping the keyboard selection step, merely
making a better layout-selection default in the list box, based on
language, intstead of always "us".)

Also, if this feature is added, make sure that the scroll box is adjusted so
that the selection is in the visible part!
Comment 2 Christian Rose 2000-08-01 18:34:43 EDT
This feature isn't added in Pinstripe, so I bumped the beta number.
Comment 3 Matt Wilson 2000-08-02 00:21:01 EDT
This feature has been in since beta1, but the mapping currently defaults to
"us".  I will change it to se-latin1
Comment 4 Christian Rose 2000-08-14 08:54:31 EDT
Nice, I noticed that it worked now in RC1. Thanks!
Closing this.
