Login screen in English
Description of problem:
Localization of the default login screen is ignored (And hence Login screen is in English) despite the default system locale is set as Chinese Simplified (PRC). It happens to other systems with other languages than English. The user's profile picture is not applied during initial login as well.
I am using KDE version of Fedora 22 from ISO.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 0.10.0-4.fc22
How reproducible: Everytime.
Steps to Reproduce:
First 3 steps is to install a Fedora and configure its default locale to be anything than English.
1. Nothing, just install Fedora 22 KDE spinoff:
2. Install all Chinese Simplified (Or any other languages for that matter) for KDE.
3. Go to "Settings" -> "Languages" from the 'Start Menu'. It allows selection of default language.
4. Go to "User Accounts" and set a profile picture. I choose a selfie picture as my user account picture.
4. Reboot, and let the system goes to login screen.
Regardless of system's default locale, login screen is always in English. The user profile picture is a generic picture instead of a selfie picture.
Login screen's language should match with admin / root user's default language.
1: A screenshot is given. It had happened for many months.
2: Whenever I locked a screen, this issue does not apply. Selfie picture and my system's locale were displayed correctly. Only log off or reboot will give me this problem.
default $HOME permissions do not allow sddm to read $HOME/.face.icon
if you do:
chmod a+x $HOME
then it should work.
