Ubiquity Locale Problem

Bug Description

Today I installed Kubuntu 13.04 on a friend's computer and used
Turkish locale. During installation process, I noticed that the
default Keyboard Layout remains in English whatever the language
selection is. Also after installation completed, I noticed that the
calendar, currency etc. settings are also wrong (they were in German
style since I picked German timezone during installation).

Changed in ubiquity (Ubuntu):
status: New → Confirmed

The same is for Romanian. IMO if a language is selected for the installer, all settings should default to the specific country for that language, if it's available.

Currency and friends do not map to languages but countries. Mapping to the time zone is the closest match available. So that is in fact by design.

What do you mean by "So that is in fact by design." ?

If you mean that the locale and default keyboard layout are selected accordingly to the Time Zone, then that is not true. It does not happen.

+1 for Ovidiu. I picked Turkey from the list, but the Keyboard setting was EN_GB and timezone with calendar settings were German.
