kubuntu-plasma5 does not allow to pick language before starting live

Running in VirtualBox.

TL;DR: Marked "Passed" because basically it is working, but not smoothly.

After boot, i only get a colored screen. Switching to TTY1 and back presents the desktop. I.e. switching the language before the live session is not possible.

I switched languages in System settings, and went on to Install and continued with German. Though the installer was translated, the Welcome slides are in English.

Reboot did not work, it was stuck on console.

Reseted for reboot, booting into the desktop went fine, even without graphics issues.
