It's not that bad a problem. It only causes a problem with the installer
when folks use a different keyboard layout than the default one. So the
workaround is to use the default keyboard layout during installation,
and then define a custom keyboard after the initial reboot using
loadkeys and localectl, if folks need this (which is rare).

As for the rest, I'm only running it in multi-user.target mode for my
Linux trainings. On the desktop, I'm running OpenSUSE Leap with KDE, and
most of my students either have Windows 10 or Mac OS, with the odd
Kubuntu or Linux Mint exception.
