Re: MX18.3 unusable as no alternative to US keyboard available

Greetings! On two installations of the base 18.3 x64 and 1 of the latest (August 2019) release the installer only offers a US keyboard layout for the 'generic' 105 key device. No alternative is available after installation. My keyboard is UK Extended. This mismatch makes MX Linux unuseable. For exa...

Ok great! I've narrowed the problem with drive listing down to a weird issue in lsblk that the installer code doesn't account for. what happens is that for some reason, partitions after 15 are listed after all other drivers are also listed. so you get sda1-15, sdb1-15, sdc-1-15, then sda15-? and so ...
