[Bug 911905] Re: hitting enter on install screen 1 forces language to top selection


I swear I just did exactly that with Lubuntu i386-20120106, it's
installing as I type this.

I booted the Live CD (actually DVD due to size) and the first screen I
was presented with was the language selection screen. I left it on the
default English and selected "Install". From there things went pretty
much as expected, but some screens were "drawn" twice or out of place.

I don't think any of this is ubiquity or casper related but rather
something to do with other elements being added to the live image in a
haphazard way as is typical during heavy development.

Status in “ubiquity” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  When choosing "install xubuntu" from the cd menu, hitting enter on the
  first screen causes the language to jump to the topmost language.

  Verified using both VirtualBox and Hardware, this can be reproduced in
  both Ubuntu and Xubuntu desktop images.


  1. when cd spins up, hit enter to accept default language
  2. hold right shift in Ubuntu for cd menu, menu is default in Xubuntu
  3. Select "Install Xubuntu" or "Install Ubuntu"
  4. At first screen in Ubiquity, hit enter to select English and continue
  5. Note next screen is not in English.
