Description of problem:
Since OOo no longer depends on the i18n component, it no longer
respects LANG, displaying an english interface to a person who has in
the installer expressed desire to use another locale (in my case
Danish), they will expect all applications to use that language.

The list of offender on a net install of Development currently is:

OpenOffice, Firefox and Mozilla - all of which default to english

I suspect Thunderbird would have the same problem but I honestly
haven't checked.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select none english locale in Anaconda
2. Install


Actual Results:  The programs mentioned above use english rather than
the selected language

Expected Results:  Use of selected language

Comment 1 Caolan McNamara 2005-03-18 10:35:58 UTC
In rawhide openoffice.org is now split up into seperate langpacks for the
supported languages, e.g. langpack-de for german, so this should be reflected in
the rawhide install now so that installing e.g. under german should suck in the
german langpack and then openoffice.org honours locale in trying to use the
german langpack under the german locale. Falling back to english like most
applications if german langpack is not available.
