install xfce keyboard layout non-interactively during install

On Debian 9, trying to

apt-get -y install xfce4 task-xfce-desktop

`but I'm prompted by keyboard layout prompt.

I need to set the layout to English (US) non-interactively.

I tried setting it in /etc/default/keyboard but it's not working.

Thanks

Re: install xfce keyboard layout non-interactively during install

Thanks for the suggestion.

I tried prefacing the apt command with DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive but it still goes to the keyboard layout selection:

English (US)
English (US) - Cherokee
English (US) - English (classi
English (US) - English (Colema
English (US) - English (Dvorak
English (US) - English (Dvorak
English (US) - English (Dvorak
English (US) - English (intern
English (US) - English (left h
English (US) - English (Macint
English (US) - English (Progra
English (US) - English (right
English (US) - English (the di
English (US) - English (US, al
English (US) - English (US, in
English (US) - English (US, wi
English (US) - English (Workma
English (US) - English (Workma
English (US) - Russian (US, ph
English (US) - Serbo-Croatian

I installed xfce4 manually and replicated the /etc/default/keyboard file the Installer creates:

cat /etc/default/keyboard
XKBLAYOUT=us
XKBVARIANT=
XKBOPTIONS=compose:menu,ctrl:nocaps
XKBMODEL=pc105
BACKSPACE=guess

But this didn't work either

And maybe like this:

dpkg-reconfigure locales
