      .Setting the console `keymap` requires the `libxkbcommon` library on your minimal install

      In RHEL 9, certain `systemd` library dependencies have been converted from dynamic linking to dynamic loading, so that your system opens and uses the libraries at runtime when they are available. With this change, a functionality that depends on such libraries is not available unless you install the necessary library. This also affects setting the keyboard layout on systems with a minimal install. As a result, the `localectl --no-convert set-x11-keymap gb` command fails.

      To work around this problem, install the `libxkbcommon` library:
      ----
      # dnf install libxkbcommon
      ----
