i recently added the russian keyboard layout to gnome. After a reboot, I am now unable to enter my password into the LUKS prompt because somehow the keyboard layout during boot was also changed.
Since the russian keyboard layout does not include many characters from the normal english keyboard layout, I can not boot.
BTW: Ubuntu 18.04, I think (maybe .10 not 100% sure) grub is still english
What can I do?
What I tried:
Boot into a recovery console before the layout is set:
- added init=/bin/sh to the linux ... commandline -> still asked for luks password and had russian keyboard layout
- someone mentioned putting a 1 to the end of that same line could help (runlevel 1 or something) -> same
Try entering my password using Alt+number
- seems not to work, when I'm in a recovery console it just puts the number as if i didn't press alt (since its a laptop, only tried the numbers above the letters, not numpad)
