Bug Description

Hi,

I just tried running the Hirsute Final image for Ubuntu Studio in a Virtual Box machine and it is not possible to select a language as stated in the Live Session Test Case.

Expected behaviour (as stated in the test case):
1. Boot Screen
2. Ubiquity - select language
3. Click Try Ubuntu

Actual behaviour:
1. Grub menu - I chose Ubuntu Studio (not clear it was for the live session - but the other options were definitely not).
2. Boots successfully into the Live Session, but everything is in English.

This is probably not the best experience for a non-English speaker to "try Ubuntu Studio".

Regards,

Ross

Sorry - it was a Live Session, so I cannot run apport again. But I can try and confirm it again on a different machine.

The Ubuntu Studio images no longer use ubiquity, so this is not a ubiquity bug.

Setting to Medium, as it is "A usability issue that does not limit the functionality of a core application".

Should we submit a bug upstream?

If the aim is to eventually be able to set the language for the live session, then we should leave the Test Case as it is for now. Marking the Manual Test Case task as invalid.

I'm considering switching the installer back to Ubiquity on Studio for 21.10 and submitting some merge requests to make the Qt version of Ubiquity not hardcoded to Kubuntu, as is currently the case, which is the reason we went to Calamares in the first place. This will require introducing a config file, but I digress.

Basically, the mechanism is this: with Ubiquity, we'd be presented the Ubiquity Display Manager upon boot allowing one to "Test Ubuntu Studio" or "Install Ubuntu Studio" (without the live session). Calamares doesn't provide a DM, so it goes straight to the live session. This is also the case with Lubuntu.

Thanks for the explanation Erich. I struggle to keep up with the changes sometimes :-)
Setting the Importance to Wishlist for the calamares, as it is not a bug but an enhancement (to provide a DM) that we would be after.
I will add a task for ubuntustudio-meta to remember to make the switch one day.

I assume it is the ubiquity-frontend-kde package that needs to be de-kubuntu-ified.
