In Ubiquity I selected German as the language, but I didn't setup an internet 
connection at installation.

Maybe that was the problem, if it has no internet connection, it cannot 
download the necessary packages and after restart the system does not care 

Let's assume that I don't have a connection during installation but I do have 
after installation. Is it possible to integrate an automatical detection and 
download of the required packages when I open KDE's region settings ? 

I just had the impression that the user is somehow lost after installation 
without internet connection, which leaves room for improvement.
