Description Adam Pribyl 2008-01-17 04:20:12 EST
Users in various countries are using multiple keyboard layouts. Setting them
thru the menu they confuse the System/Administration/Keyboard and
System/Settings/Hardware/Keyboard. Setting keyboard layouts in firsboot would
help them to use their desired layout right after installation.

Most likely the person who runs firstboot is also the person who installed
the system.  This might make more sense as an advanced option to gdm say.

Of course there is already the GNOME keyboard switching applet.
Comment 2 Chris Lumens 2008-04-09 17:43:22 EDT
We are moving more towards configuring these sorts of things in the display
manager instead of firstboot.
Comment 3 Jon Stanley 2008-04-23 16:29:35 EDT
Adding FutureFeature keyword to RFE's.
Comment 4 Matthias Clasen 2008-05-23 00:12:45 EDT
keyboard layout selector is present in rawhide gdm.
