I have reported a new bug about failure to install a non-US-English
keyboard. See this link


The keyboard is still installed as US-English even if Swedish is
selected during the installation

This bug is reported from a system installed from Lubuntu Xenial
alternate i386, but the corresponding desktop version is also affected.
It is a rather new bug, that seems to have appeared at about the same
time as the big problems with starting Ubiquity.

Selecting another language in the installer looks the same in the
alternate installer. But it looks different in the desktop installer.
The locale is not pre-selected, you click on the world map, and you are
asked if the selected keyboard is correct. The following window with
alternative keyboards is empty. But that would be OK, if the installer
would do, what it promises.

After installation a lot of text is in the selected language, Swedish in
my case, for example the pulldown menus in lxterminal. But when I type,
the US English keyboard is still there. I have to run

setxkbmap se

Please install Lubuntu Xenial beta1 and try another language. Click
'affects me too' if you have a similar problem with some other
non-English language.

Best regards
