Description of problem:
After running a minimal install of FC4 - because I had only the first CD, I was left with a US American Gnome. Not what I wanted.
On my quest to switch to British English, and to add support for German (for spell checking), I hunted through my Desktop> Preferences menu.
Desktop> System Settings looked more promising, but I don't want to change the language for the whole system, just for me.
If you file a bug report (bug 136648), you get told that languages are to be added using system-config-packages.. very unintuitive, but okay..
So I loaded it. Under the languages section I get a rather long randomly sorted list of languages. Finding the two I want is a chore given the lack of order. After selecting British and German I'm asked to insert a CD, which I don't have handy.
Fedora is mature now, Gnome has supported the use of different languages for yonks, please can you make the ability to change a language be more intuitive for FC5?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Would like bug to be marked as a Target for FC5.
I cannot add new language with system-config-packages. "Update" button is
not active when I select a new language.
In FC3 SUPPORTED line in /etc/sysconfig/i18n includes all languages I selected
during installation, but in FC4 only en_US. Is it intended?
