    Keyboard problem after installing

    Hi guys,

    I installed Ubuntu 12.10 using WUBI (alongside Windows XP). After the installation, the keyboard layout was set to arabic so I can't log in (I set a password when I executed WUBI).
    I guess the problem is because I'm from Argentina, so the keyboard is set to AR.

    I can only log in as guest but that's all I can do but I can change the keyboard layout from that account.

    I'll appreciate your input.

    Thanks!.

    What happens if you drop to a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+F1)? Is it still arabic? If not, try:
    Code:
    sudo dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration

    Try reinstalling by running on the command line:
    Code:
    wubi.exe --language=en

    Alright. I'll try it and come back with the results.

    I'm about to submit the bug.

    Thanks!

    I installed it with "--language=en" but the keyboard layout was in arabic again.
    The difference now is that I could change the arabic keyboard on-screen to english, so I logged in and changed the default layout.

    Thanks.
