Installer: do keyboard layout first

Postby ingeva » Wed Jun 20, 2012 4:45 am

When installing LM13 (from DVD) the screen to define the keyboard comes after it has been used with the partition manager. This can create some problems for non-US users who don't know keyboards very well.
I have a Norwegian keyboard, so if I specify a mount as /Store, if will be shown as &Store. Users with non-US keyboards may need to know (or find out by trial and error) what key to press.

That is actually a good point, so moving it here for consideration by the developers. Renamed the topic to fit in this section better.
