Description Christian Rose 2000-06-29 17:53:38 UTC
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".)

Comment 1 Christian Rose 2000-07-13 21:27:29 UTC
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 22:34:43 UTC
This feature isn't added in Pinstripe, so I bumped the beta number.

Comment 3 Matt Wilson 2000-08-02 04:21:01 UTC
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 12:54:31 UTC
Nice, I noticed that it worked now in RC1. Thanks!
Closing this.
