I think that's the other way around. I've seen r61274 which led to shipping two files and it looks like copying both in console-setup-udeb.base-installer could help, and it seems so: Previous situation (my very first published d-i image, with c-s enabled): - one selects the keyboard at the very beginning. I picked say “Français – Autre” (fr/oss) - the installation goes on. - one gets asked about the keyboard model. Default item was “PC105 (Intl)” for me. - one gets asked about the layout again. fr/oss again. - after a few seconds, one gets asked about the layout again again. fr/oss it is, again. Now, once we copy the console-setup file along the keyboard file (i.e. once we apply the attached patch): - one selects the keyboard at the very beginning. - the installation goes on. - one gets asked about the layout again. So there's some kind of improvement already, at least. I'm going to have a look at preseeding in console-setup now. As for using setxkbmap, I've patched keyboard-configuration.postinst so that it calls: setxkbmap "$layout" "$variant" $options when $DISPLAY is set, when setxkbmap is available, and when keyboard_present. (I picked it up from my very first image, some adjustments may be needed, I didn't play around with options and so on.) Mraw, KiBi.
