Use 'Keyboard language' (or similar) in stead of 'Lxkeymap' in menu.

lxkeymap (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

In the 'preferences' menu of Lubuntu most applications are listed according to what they do ('power manager' , 'monitor settings'), not according to the name of the package. This is the preferred way, used by all major operative systems.

Listing an app by its name (in this case, 'Lxkeymap') does not help the user unless he already knows what the app does. A beginner would not guess that this is the menu point for switching between languages.

I suggest changing the title to 'Keyboard language' or similar.

Actually, I think the importance of this should be "Low", as it's a "cosmetic/usability issue that does not limit the functionality of a non-core application".

Changed in lxkeymap (Ubuntu):
importance: Undecided → Low

This is also a part in a much larger need to standardize how applications are labeled and presented in desktop environments. All packages, not just lxkeymap, should follow the same pattern whether just by what it does or else by what it does plus the program name in parenthesis.
