Description of problem:
Thunderbird calendar (Lightning) does not honor system nor Thunderbird language settings, respectively does not contain any localization files, only English.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have Fedora release 28 (Twenty Eight) and language settings set to Czech.
2. Update Thunderbird to version 60.
3. Run it.
Thunderbird is in Czech, but all calendar UI is in English.
Lightning should use the locale of the system, same as Thunderbird does.
The UI is in English for any profile created by Thunderbird. If I download TB from thunderbird.net and create a profile using the binary from there, Lightning is in Czech for that profile.
I confirm this problem with thunderbird-60.0-1.fc28.x86_64 using french:
- Thunderbird is in french
- Calendar (Lightning) stay in english
Confirmed with DE; also (per https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/FEDORA-2018-be22632a02) with RU.
Apparantly, the build process is not fully adjusted to the fact that lightning is shipped with TB now.
it works as described in German, however moving from one date to another needs 1 minute or even more the first time in a session.
I confirm the problem. It's a packaging problem. Please see :
The langpacks for lightning have to be generated separately and added to the rpm.
Je viens de mettre à jour Thunderbird avec la version thunderbird-60.2.1-2.fc29.x86_64 et comme avec les versions précédentes thunderbird est en français mais la partie lightning est elle toujours en anglais.
IF YOU ARE NOT BILINGUAL FRENCH-ENGLISH:
I just upgraded to thunderbird-60.2.1-2.fc29.x86_64 and as with previous versions thunberbird is in french but the lightning part is still in english.
I just upgraded to thunderbird-60.3.0-1.fc29.x86_64 available on koji.
For french language, this new version fixes the problem of translation in calendar (lightning).
