Fedora 28 Change: gnome-initial-setup no longer displays Keyboard pane (so cannot select an input method)

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Hi folks!

I just wanted to flag up a change in Fedora 28 which will unfortunately
likely be a problem for folks who use input methods:


This change considers the input panels in anaconda and g-i-s to be
'redundant', and so disables the one in g-i-s, on the theory that you
should've just picked a keyboard layout in anaconda. Unfortunately,
anaconda doesn't understand input methods, you can't set up an input
method from anaconda. So if you need an input method (not just a
keyboard layout), you now have no way to configure it before you reach
the desktop; you have to know to go into Control Center and configure
it after you reach the desktop.

I guess this is no worse than the situation for any desktop other than
GNOME, but still, it's a step backwards there.

CJK folks especially, please be aware of this and let your community
know about it, if we don't get it changed somehow by release :/
