Trusty: live session install keyboard default to EN_US

Bug #1417174 reported by Dave Morley on 2015-02-02

ubiquity (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

1. Grab latest daily iso of trusty
2. Boot the image
3. Once the menu arrives click on Try
4. Wait for the live desktop session to start
5. Open gedit type shift+3 and see if it gives you a £ or a # sign
6. Click on install
7. Complete the process till the location map appears
8. Set location to UK/London (for me this is automatic as I'm based there )
9. Tap on continue

I expect the keymap to be on EN_UK like it does if I do a straight install rather than going through the live session

The keyboard is set EN_US in the live session I believe and so this setting is transferred to the ubiquity setup, but keyboard should be set based on location.

The keyboard layout for the live session is set by pressing F3 in the boot loader. The keyboard layout for the installed system is set in the "Keyboard layout" menu immediately after the location map menu - it does default to whatever country you select in the map location, and after selection the layout is changed in the live session (although the layout widget on the menubar isn't updated, which it probably should be).
