FS#231 - Wrong keyboard layout in xorg.conf when changing to "estonian" in elpanel

system: elive 1.8.8 (downloaded from elivecd.org) installed on inspiron 1520

the default language is us and it is OK... the problem is when i change the keyboard layout to estonian in elpanel, the output of the keys is totally mangled. it looks something like a mix between webdings and chinese

since the layout is NOT giving latin letters, the user is unable to log in. this is a big problem for those new users trying out linux/elive... they have no idea how to fix xorg.conf themselves.

logging in from command line i was able to see that the xorg.conf had “et” as a layout instead of “ee”

after changing the layout to “ee” manually, everything works again
