Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 119740
kde-i18n-German during installation
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:39 EST
Description of problem:
Since Red Hat 8.0 and also in all Fedora Releases:
When I have selected the Language "German" to install a new Release
(KDE is my prefered desktop)in the Installations-Menu it is necessary
to install the german kde-package kde-i18n-German manually after
installation to get german GUI/Menus.
The packages have never been istalled automatically.
For a Newbie this is a problem I think, because if he/she wants to
install the german version of kde and select it during the
installation, and then the language isn't installed...
I have never tried an update/upgrade (to install a new release), I
have seen the bug because I have ever made a new installaton to have a

GUI (mouse, language, etc.). - The default language in gnome is
correct set as German after selecting the language during the
Maybe a stupid question:
Would it be possible to change some config-files which can be used
from kde and gnome together for further releases ?!
Like a XF86Config-file, O.K. this project isn't a good example, but I
hope you know what I mean.
It would also help new users to have some Links to recent config-files
in the home-directories, just some more samples or more comments in them.
Please ignore my bad english :-) ssc
In RH-8.0 I had to check manually the kde-i18n-German package
(manually / advanced package selection during installation =
"benutzerdefinierte Auswahl der Pakete") then the package was
installed, but it wasn't checked by default after choosing the German
I just did a personal desktop install with today's rawhide tree in
german and selected to add KDE to my packages being installed and got
Could you attach the /root/anaconda-ks.cfg from your install?
Created attachment 99456 [details]
I hope this will help you.
Aha, I see what it is. You do de_AT instead of de_DE -- fixed in new
Thanks for your time you spent and the info.
