Still running the livecd here, and before I try to do a harddisc installation, I'd like to know, how #! handles localization, so locale, language-packs, dictionaries, keymap and such.
Till now I only found the info about "setxkbmap" in autostart.sh, but shouldn't it be the cleaner solution, to set the locale correctly?
I am wondering, if this problem can be solved, by installing the base system using a "command-line" installation of Ubuntu, and then getting to #! using the script. Does that make any difference concerning localization?
I'll have to do the harddisc installation that way anyway, because I want a fully encrypted installation on my laptop, and that's only possible using the alternate installation cd.
Localisation is something which needs working on. I have not really had much feedback about it, other than offers to translate the main Openbox menu and the issues with the keymap command on the LiveCD. Also, I have not done much testing on localisation, but I as far as I know the language-packs and such like are handled by the Ubiquity installer on the LiveCD and Debian installer on the minimalCD.
Again, this is something which definitely needs some attention. Having said that, the feedback on this has been fairly minimal, so maybe it is not a huge problem at the moment?!
Tomorrow I'll most likely do the installation with German localization, using the Ubuntu alternate cd and a "command-line" installation, then the #! install-script, and report back how it went.
I am not sure if this is related; however, I changed the language to American English (USA) from the GDM and made it default. The little 'quirks' of UK English (no offense) have gone away, i.e., the time is now on AM/PM and you tube doesn't assume I want UK English, etc.
Is this what you were looking for?
