Installed Garuda i3WM edition some time ago and have been enjoying using it.
Only things that I would like to see are GRUB kaymap to be set automatically if person chooses something else than US keymap. Of course it's not any biggie to tinker that after the installation, but for those who encrypts disk it would be nice to have the same keymap automagically set for GRUB.
Would you mind describing the procedure?
I am not familiar to encryption. I find this setting critical and I would personally prefer having full control on it, if I ever used it.
If automation includes only a bash script and selecting the right keymap has no serious caveats for mistakes, who knows?...
What I meant by automation during the installation process is that GRUB keymap would be set automatically to the one that is selected ... now it seems to default to US layout, even one selects another one during the installation.
Or Garuda team could fork it and make it more user friendly for those who encrypt their drives during the installation process and enters passphrase containing something else than a-z, A-Z, 0-9 ...
It is rather downer if one does this and then tries to enter the passphrase when booting first time after the installation and it doesn't work because GRUB defaults to US keylayout and not to the one user has selected during the boot process.
Some might thing Garuda is broken and install something else instead ...
But it's not my decision to make, it's something that Garuda team need to discuss.
It's all about user experience and the first impression you see.
You can't get much more user-friendly than Garuda.
Your wishes should be directed to Calameres, who will give you this easy installation.
You could write a note about the keyboard layout, but as we see all the time, no one reads them
If we were selling something or had to sell something, certainly.
The Garuda team does all this for the joy of the FOSS system in their spare time, free of charge thanks to support from fosshost.org and internal team donors.
But this is rarely thanked.
There is nothing harder than life and ingratitude is the world's reward
I don't see anyone in the team who would have time for this, are you doing it for the encryption user community?
