That's interesting. Good job, Konstantinos.
I tested this in Japanese.
1. update-locale-config uses "ja_JP", but Japanese locale has always
encoding name also. "ja_JP.eucJP" (this is default locale for
Japanese, and d-i creates this) or "ja_JP.UTF-8" (UTF-8, optional).
2. xfree86-kbd gets kbdmap from language. But I think it would be
taken from d-i value or console-data. When I use US pc104 keyboard
with Japanese locale, mismatch occurs.
3. xfree86-kbd sets only XkbLayout.
But at least Japanese keyboard needs to set XkbModel. Typical
Japanese keyboard setting is following:
Option "XkbRules" "xfree86"
Option "XkbModel" "jp106"
Option "XkbLayout" "jp"
(debconf parameter is xserver-xfree86/config/inputdevice/keyboard/model.)
4. When I run "update-locale-config ja_JP", it includes:
Running /usr/lib/localization-config//ltsp-xfree86-kbd ja_JP
Running /usr/lib/localization-config//opera ja_JP
Is this right result?
