BL RC1 live : kbmap de-fr choice, like in old Waldorf, would be useful

Hello !
I'm running Hydrogen live RC1 after A2 and it looks like the baby grows fine and healthy.  Congratulations !

I'm french and use an azerty mapping : I know that, for testing, I only need to type setxkbmap fr.
But I think the little button, right side of tint bar to choose en/de/fr that existed in Waldorf live iso would be useful for non-english newcomers.
Thanks

The same systray applet has been included in Hydrogen RC1, it just isn't enabled by default. To use it, open your "Run" dialog (Alt+F2) and enter "fbxkb" without quotes.

If you want it to always start when you login, add it to ~./config/openbox/autostart with the other applets...

Great ! Thanks a lot for that complete information.
I hope we'll see the keyboard switcher applet enabled in the final release because it can improve the non-qwerty users who will discover this wonderful distro in a live session.
Once again, "Bravo !" to the whole team and contributors for their methodic work and the rebirth of #!

Aaldo#, no problem and thanks for the feedback!

Enabling it by default is a sane request.  8o  I'll add this to the proposal list, kindly post what configurations you had to setup and/or any languages or locales you had to install.. Thanks again!

Definitely a "sane" request - I've just realised us Brits get stuck with the US keyboard in a Live Session sad

The only wet blanket I'd throw on this fire is that the options in the layout-switcher applet have to be set in advance. How many are we going to enable by default? CrunchBang never had Japanese available for example, so I always had to do 'setxkbmap jp' anyway.

Cool, a noob-hurdle worthy of Arch!

Waldorf enabled by default us/de/fr. 
I think 5 is a max.
It could be us/de/fr, and es or it, and of course, jp ;-)
