Description Jens Petersen 2004-11-10 08:02:09 EST
Description of problem:
In GNOME sessions with bn_IN and bn_BD gimlet isn't showing
a language string for some reason.

How reproducible:
every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start a GNOME session in bn_IN or bn_BD.
2. Start a gtk app.
Actual results:
Gimlet remains blank.

Expected results:
Gimlet should display Bn for Bengali.

Comment 1 Jens Petersen 2004-11-10 08:19:30 EST
Ok, changing Gimlet's lang data from "bn" to "bn_IN" helps for "bn_IN",
but not "bn_BD".  (For a "bn_BD" session gimlet then shows "En".)

Jatin, can we change the Bengali LE in unitLE to have locale name bn
rather than bn_IN?  (This is already done for some other langs.)

[Personally I would prefer all LEs just to use the two letters for their
language name when there is no ambiguity, but that will have to wait
for FC4.]
Comment 2 Leon Ho 2004-11-11 00:51:17 EST
Is the difference bn_IN and bn_BD just grammatical? (i.e. will current layouts
be suitable with bn_BD?)

Maybe changing gimlet affects less if the above question is a no.
Comment 3 Jens Petersen 2004-11-11 01:23:40 EST
Well gimlet's locale/language certainly needs to and is going to
improve, but if we fix it as bn_IN, then people using bn_BD won't
be able to see Bn in gimlet.

It should be equally trivial to change unitLE to say "bn" rather
than "bn_IN" though, and lots of other LEs already do that.

[In the long run LEs shouldn't be hardcoded in gimlet of course...]
Comment 4 Lawrence Lim 2004-11-14 23:52:36 EST
Had a look with im-sdk-12.1-7. It seems that even when bn is added to
the GIMLET it cannot be selected. Hence, input is not possible in the
bn locale except via using the hotkey menu.
Comment 5 Jens Petersen 2004-11-15 02:45:54 EST
When gimlet and unitLE agree on the bn locale it works fine,
but when they don't Bengali can't be activated as you opserve.
Comment 6 Jens Petersen 2004-11-17 02:22:50 EST
This should be fixed in im-sdk-12.1-8.
Comment 7 Lawrence Lim 2004-11-21 20:13:00 EST
Confirmed fixed in im-sdk-12.1-8. Bn (india) is now being displayed.
