MX18 TLE (Thai Language Edition)

I'm not sure why I'm even posting this here, but this is a preconfigured MX18 for Windows users in Thailand. The font and locales are all pre-set.

For now, the download is here on Google Drive. (I might upload future versions to archive.org)

Initially it will be mostly about the panel layout, but it also means that some settings will be tuned for non-techies which just want things to work. For example, I added Firefox as a favourite and removed the Terminal from there. Codecs would also be included.

The respin's main point is about the localization issues though:
  • The fonts are changed to the de-facto standard (Which somehow actually looks better than Noto Sans Thai!). Fonts in Firefox is also preconfigured in this manner.
  • Of course, the default locale is changed to Thai.
  • I preconfigured the keymaps and switching. (Fun fact: Our keyboards always have double-languaged labels.)
  • Oh, and also making the stock experience less alienating.

I haven't tried your edition, because my first language is not Thai. What I notice however is that when I type Thai in a terminal window the nikahit (อํ) part of the am อำ vowel is not displayed.
Have you found a solution for that in your edition?

I need to check. Recent snapshots now have a thai xterm font, but I wasn't consciously testing it
