#7553 closed bug (fixed)

[ReadOnlyBootPrompt] Custom keymap defaults to US-International

Reported by: deejam Owned by: axeld
Priority: normal Milestone: R1/alpha3
Component: Applications/FirstBootPrompt Version: R1/Development

Platform: All


When installing (or upgrading) r1a3 from a CD and choosing another language than English, the default keymap is set to Custom. When installed or upgraded, the Haiku keymap will be US-International.

What is Custom supposed to do? The user will probably think that Custom means the keymap for the language, or when upgrading, the same as before the upgrade.

If I remember, the keymap was defaulted to English before the latest redesign of ReadOnlyBootPrompt. That was better because then the users sees that it will be English, and could choose to change to something else.

ReadOnlyBootPromt in default (untouched) mode

ReadOnlyBootPrompt when the language is changed to Swedish and keymap is not touched. If installed this way, keymap will be US-international

That doesn't look correct indeed. The "Custom" should mean that you are using a non-standard customized keymap, ie. none that you can just choose there.

Will have a look if I can reproduce the issue.

Replying to axeld:

I was able to reproduce this by simply booting the Haiku CD. Tested on an IBM T41 and in VirtualBox running on Mac OS X.
