Bug Description

I installed (overwriting an existing partition) from Ubuntu 19.10 "Eoan Ermine" - Beta amd64 (20191006) selecting "Language": "en_US" and keyboard italian. When i entered the computer name "corrado-p6-ee-1006" i see instead "corrado/p6/ee/1006" because the installer uses the US keyboard so i was forced to enter the computer name considering i have an US keyboard

I'm seeing a similar issue on 19.10 doing a french install on an uefi machine
- boot from the usb stick with Ubuntu Desktop 19.10
- select the 'install' item from the text-mode-menu
- in ubiquity select french
- keep the default selected keyboard (french - alternative)
-> typing on that screen the layout is azerty
- using custom partitioning (in case that makes a difference)
- on the user creation page, the layout is english/qwerty

Thinking about it, it's probably wrong on the partionner step as well since for entering digit I had to not-use-shift where you need to do that with the french layout
