Switching languages does not completely work
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:28 EST
Description of problem:
Switching default languages before logging in does not work completely
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC5 in US English
2. Switch the default language to Mainland (Simplified) Chinese from the login
3. Login, most applications show Simplified Chinese menus.
4. Logout. Switch the default language back to US English. Login again.
5. Put a black CD into the CD writer.
An CD icon shows up on the desktop with Simplified Chinese label.
US English label.
I'm not sure what you mean by "label". The label shown for a cd disk is read
from the cd itself. If that is in chinese there is nothing we can do about that.
Or am i misunderstanding. Please give a bit more detail.
Here's some additional information (and corrections to the original report):
1. I used a DVD+R disk, not a CD. The label that shows up underneath the DVD+R
icon for a blank DVD+R is "Blank DVD+R Disk." The Chinese translation is "ç©ºDVD
2. I did not install FC5 on a fresh box. Rather I upgraded an FC4 box to FC5.
3. The problem is not always reproducible. On subsequent tries of switching
between US English and Simplified Chinese, I did get the correct label for the
The times it doesn't work, is there any processes running from the desktop
session after you log out?
For instance, gnome-vfs-daemon?
I did not check at the time. Something might have been running.
As I mentioned in my second post, I did not experience this problem on
subsequent language switches. So it wouldn't hurt my feelings if you close this
bug as not-reproducible.
