Keyboard layout handler

Post by Atip » 24. Aug 2017, 09:01

In fluxbox on the lxpanel the keyboard layout handler is set to french FR.
That causes a problem for a none-french KB user especially first time lxpanel user.
Like I tried to adjust the panel width which was impossible with KB set to us.
It took me a while to solve the problem before I realized what that FR on the panel signified.

May be that keyboard layout handler should follow the language chosen by the user when installing.

Thanks for your remark, Atip.

The issue comes my mistake: in the package slint-user-settings I included my own setting.

I next version, to be released in a few weeks, I will not include the keyboard layout chooser at all in lxpanel, as I have found cases of odd behavior when it tries to detect the proper layout.

But the user will be able to add this widget or plugin to the panel: just click right on the panel to access the context menu to do that.
