Description Piotr Golonka 2000-10-04 08:39:09 UTC
It looks like internationalization files for KDE-1.1.2 are in place,
byt when I set the language to "Polish" I cannot get polish
Translation part is quite important for my users: some of them
are new to LINUX and does not know english.
The problem was observed on all machines we've installed RH-7.0.

Do any other non-english languages work for you?
Did prior versions work (it's possible that the Polish translation isn't

Comment 2 Thilo Mezger 2000-10-04 16:09:43 UTC
KDE locale _does_ works when I set it manually in the Control Center.
I think the problem is KDM not reading /etc/profile and/or /etc/profile.d/kde.sh 
(as mentioned before).
That's why KDM is always in English (even when explicity configured to do so)
and therefore the default language when starting KDE.

Installing xinitc-3.1-1 doesn't help, any of the international languages still doesn't work.

Re-installing kdelibs solves problem.
