Description Michal Stanke (Mozilla.cz) [:MikkCZ][:mstanke] (use needinfo) 2018-09-09 10:19:01 UTC
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):
Thunderbird 60.0
Lightning 6.2

How reproducible:
- always

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.

Actual results:
Thunderbird is in Czech, but all calendar UI is in English.

Expected results:
Lightning should use the locale of the system, same as Thunderbird does.

Additional info:
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.

Comment 3 Donald O. 2018-09-11 19:43:22 UTC
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.

Comment 4 Pierre Juhen 2018-09-24 04:41:00 UTC
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.


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).
