On installing a recent Xubuntu with Ubuntu 16.04, I find myself unable to set keyboard layout permanently to German becase every time I do it using dpkg, the initramfs-tools bug kicks in.
and then the error message about initramfs-tools appears.
Now luckily I know that there is a merge request submitted for this bug.
How will I know that the patch has become available? (i.e. how do I know that the next version of initramfs made for Debian has made its way into the Ubuntu update site?) Because, the Ubuntu bug page says "Status: fix released" but this is obviously not enough.
And.. is there a workoaround for time being?
