Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 121674
Locale not supported by locale.
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:41 EST
Description of problem: Cannot use locale Nepali. When i choose the
locale to nepali(LC_np). It says locale not supported by Xlib.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedore core 2 test 2
Steps to Reproduce:
Glibc doesn't seem to include np in the locale definitions. You need a
glibc locale definition for nepali and then possibly X and gdm
Where does LC_np come from. This is wrong for multiple reasons: the
language code "LC" does not exit, it's written in uppercase (instead
of lowercase), "np" is in lowercase (instead of uppercase).
If ne_NP would be used it works. At least in FC2, don't know when
this locale was added.
Closing bug as 'NOTABUG' - incorrect locale usage.
This is not necessarily NOTABUG. Somebody has to check where this
incorrect locale name comes from. If it is automatically listed in
the gdm login screen something *is* wrong.
Manish) How are you selecting this locale?
Sorry for listing incorrect name. It is actually ne_NP. I choose that
during the login.
I didnt showed anything in nepali. Then I ran nautilus from the
terminal. It said
locale not supported by Xlib.
Do you have a directory
and files like LC_CTYPE in it? If yes, it's a matter of adding the
voodoo in /usr/lib/X11/locale/locale.dir. Try adding a line like
to that file.
There is a directory /usr/lib/locale/ne_NP and there are also files
like LC_CTYPE in it. I looked in the /usr/lib/X11/locale/locale.dir.
I added the line
Now the warning message problem is solved. But i cannot see
characters in Nepali in Nautilus. Further, the characters are
invisible. I cannot see menubar but the files and folders are visible
(in English). I can only see Places menu(in english).
Same problem with gedit.
Same Problem with FC2. IS anybody working on that???
Please report this problem to X.Org upstream at the following bugzilla
address: http://bugs.freedesktop.org - against the xorg component.
Once upstream has reviewed this request and integrated this into
X.Org CVS, it will be included in X.Org 6.8.0 or later, and will
eventually make it into Fedora Core.
Once you've filed your report upstream, please paste the URL here, and
we will monitor the upstream report, and consider backporting support
to currently supported Fedora Core releases.
Thanks in advance.
