Bug Description

* Booted 12.04 Beta 1, amd64 desktop from an USB-stick.
* After selecting the timezone the keyboard layout should be choosen
* I've been cycling through the keyboardlayouts and at "German - German (qwerty)" the installer crashed

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/ubiquity/ubiquity/", line 44, in wrapper
    return target(self, *args, **kwargs)
  File "/usr/lib/ubiquity/plugins/", line 300, in on_keyboard_variant_selected
    var = variantMap[misc.utf8(variant)]
KeyError: u'German - German (qwerty)'

I haven't found the exact source of the bug yet though I can confirm it's a KDE only bug.

There seems to be some missing layouts in the variantMap. I'll have another look later/tomorrow and see if I can maybe get the logic of the gtk version into the qt one.

Actually, it also affects the gtk frontend, it just doesn't crash :)
This is most likely caused by console-setup not being in sync with what our X server supports, I'm doing a test rebuild to ensure this fixes it.

summary: - Kubuntu 12.04 Beta 1: ubiquity crash at keyboard selection
+ and console-setup's layout/variant list don't match
affects: ubiquity (Ubuntu) → console-setup (Ubuntu)
