Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 186918
German language pack is missing
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:28 EST
Description of problem:
The german language-pack (de.xpi - email@example.com) is
missing in the current thunderbird package.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set system locale to german
2. Start thunderbird
3. No german translation existant
4. Alternatively: Open extensions. The german language pack is missing.
No german language pack is installed.
There should be a german language pack installed.
It seems that manually installing de.xpi from
does not work because the file install.rdf contained in the .xpi seems to be
broken. If one removes the first two blank lines from install.rdf and repackages
the .xpi, the installation works fine.
This problem is discussed in the fedoraforum:
Skipping the german language pack is IMHO inconsequent because for Firebird
there is a german languagepack delivered in the rpm. So I think the dev's should
add the german languagepack to the thunderbird rpm ASAP.

grmpf I meant the browser Firefox and not the dbms ;-)
The latest 184.108.40.206 fixes this problem for me.
as Reporter mention that is fixed and working, so closing bug,
if you have any further problem, please feel free to open bug
