Description of problem:
As part of the i18n test day I started libreoffice in a de_DE locale freshly installed F28 nightly workstation image. gnome told me that additional software is needed - the de langpack. However it failed to actually install it. It worked find with dnf install langpacks-de, though.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run libreoffice in de_DE locale without de langpack
fails to install langpack
should install langpack or at least tell me why it failed.
How did it fail? Was there an error message?
I suspect what you have here is the missing openh264 repo metadata issue, https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1554981#c10
It says that it was not found and shows a link to a website with more information. When I click on that link, nothing happens. Just checked again, the link in the error message is:
I can copy it with a right click. Not sure why it does not open the browser when I left click, though.
I'm pretty sure it's failing for you because fedora-cisco-openh264 is skip_if_unavailable=False + enabled_metadata=1 which makes the packagekitd in F28 stable crash at startup (fixed in https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/FEDORA-2018-5ebe0eb1f2) and then gnome-software fails silently without getting any results back from packagekit.
Langpack installation works for me here with disabled fedora-cisco-openh264: https://kalev.fedorapeople.org/libreoffice-langpacks.webm
Also clicking on the error link works for me here. I believe there was a mutter bug with link opening, also fixed in https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/FEDORA-2018-5ebe0eb1f2
I nominated https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1544193 (openh264 repo issue) as a F28 Beta blocker now. The rest of the issues here seem already fixed up, so let's close this ticket. Thanks for testing it, Till!
