Description Toni Willberg 2003-08-30 11:49:25 EDT
An user without root privs can't set language of the user interface, and also
can't set the locale.

This is very important in multiuser workstations, where you have lot's of people
wanting to use some other than the default langauge of the box.
Comment 1 Miloslav Trmac 2003-08-31 10:36:02 EDT
You can create /etc/.i18n and set your locale there.
Comment 2 Toni Willberg 2003-08-31 10:46:11 EDT
That's true.

But still it should be changeable using the graphical ui.
Comment 3 Jonathan Blandford 2003-08-31 13:15:26 EDT
It has to be set at login time, and can be picked from GDM.
