Bug Description

Steps to reproduce:
1. Start Ubuntu MATE 18.04.5 LTS installer
2. Specify Russian language on the first page of installer
3. Wait installer to finish

Expected results:
* the keyboard layout switcher shows two layouts - *en* and *ru*, reacts on <Alt>+<Shift> hotkey

Actual results:
* the keyboard layout switcher is not shown, does not react on <Alt>+<Shift> hotkey

Note: the contents of keyboard configuration files is the following:

```
$ cat /etc/default/keyboard
# KEYBOARD CONFIGURATION FILE

# Consult the keyboard(5) manual page.

XKBMODEL="pc105"
XKBLAYOUT="us,ru"
XKBVARIANT=","
XKBOPTIONS="grp_led:scroll"

BACKSPACE="guess"

```

so the Russian keyboard layout was added, but <Alt>+<Shift> is not defined.
