Description David Balažic 2003-01-13 17:42:35 UTC
Description of problem:

During GUI install, there is not text field for testing out the
selected keyboard layout. During a typical install ( "Personal Desktop", 
autopartition ) the first screen that demands entering text is the one asking 
for root password. So the user can not be sure what he is typing.
Especially since the keyboard layout I use ( slovene ) does not work !
I select it, but it is still US layout in effect to the end of installation.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

I don't want to add a test widget.  Our usability tests showed that newbies were
confused about what they were supposed to do in that widget.  I think we should
just try to make sure the keymaps work correctly.   

Have you filed a separate bug about the Slovene keymap not working?

Comment 2 David Balažic 2003-01-17 13:38:00 UTC
Yes, bug #82093.

Comment 3 Brent Fox 2003-01-20 22:47:57 UTC
Ok, I'm going to close this bug as 'wontfix' then.  We're investigating the
other bug.

And what are the results of your "newbie tests" regarding the "nodeadkeys"
issue? Isn't this much more confusing as the text input field?! See bug 82398.
