Bug Description

Ubuntu 10.04 Alpha amd64

Lucid Alpha 2 installation from Live CD amd64.
On keyboard selection page I select Russian keyboard. In test area I can enter English and Russian symbols. Layout can be changed by Alt+Shift. OK.

Page on which you create username and password.
Only Russian layout works. Layout is not changed when I press Alt+Shift.
If I add keyboard layout applet on gnome-panel I can change layout by this applet.

Newly installed system has English layout by default. It's OK.
But there is no additional layout, Russian in my case.

<http://goo.gl/YwIcT>: "The “Keyboard layout” screen should appear immediately before whichever is the first keyboard-requiring step. This might be, for example, “Connect to the Internet”, “Allocate disk space”, or “Where are you”."

<https://goo.gl/bAAQrz>: “Who are you?” — This is a keyboard-requiring step."

It may save time to fix this bug at the same time as bug 630990, bug 871752, and bug 1047384.
