Description Luya Tshimbalanga 2005-10-13 13:53:14 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8b5) Gecko/20051008 Fedora/1.5-0.5.0.beta2 Firefox/1.4.1

Description of problem:
With a user account, system-config-language will ask to enter root password. 
Normally, users should be able to set own language without root password.
I am not sure if there is another language setting for user though.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. On Gnome desktop, Desktop-->System Settings --> Languages
2. System-config-language should directly prompt to user settings

Actual Results:  System-config-languages prompt root password before entering the user setting.

Expected Results:   System-config-language should directly prompt to user settings

The bug here is that there is no per-user language *preference*.
The *system setting* does exactly what - change the language for the whole system.

See bug 172130.
