gnome does not preserve settings from /etc/locale.conf
Last modified: 2014-02-13 14:57:13 EST
Description of problem:
When I login to gnome, my settings from /etc/locale.conf are not imported into my environment.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):gnome-shell-3.8.4-2.fc19
How reproducible: 100%
Steps to Reproduce:
1.add LC_COLLATE="C" to /etc/locale.conf
2.login via ssh or vtty
3.note LC_COLLATE is set
4.login to gnome-shell
6.note LC_COLLATE is not set
default settings are not honored
the defaults set in /etc/locale.conf should be honored
I just bumped into this: installed Fedora 19, updated all packages, and the first thing I did was to change LANG=en_US.UTF-8 to LANG=en_US.iso88591 in /etc/locale.conf. After rebooting the system, when I log into GNOME Shell with my regular user and execute "locale" I still see the old en_US.UTF-8. I could change the locale thru my user's .bashrc but that would affect only the bash session.
Is there any update on this? A "can't reproduce", "wont fix in F19", "known issue" etc would be enough.
