Notable Issues

Installer Issues

  • System encryption password set before setting keyboard locale (1047384)
    • Workround: Start the installation with the correct keymap. (Use F3) to set your keymap before booting to Try or Install Xubuntu from that menu.
  • Keyboard layout issues noted in Ubuntu or other flavours during installation:
    • Auto-selected keyboard layout no longer matches chosen region (1706859)
  • “Force UEFI installation” dialog has non-working Go Back/Continue buttons ( 1724482)
  • No restart after installation ( 1723760)

General Issues

  • Network indicators
    • Currently at times the panel could show 2 network icons, this appears to be a race condition which we have not been able to rectify in time for release. While this is an appearance issue only as far as we know, you can if you wish restart networking, the affected plugin or the panel. This fixes the issue in your running session but does not prevent the issue from re-appearing.
