Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 236332
National flags are missing again
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:02 EST
Description of problem:
National flags are missing from kdebase in FC6 again.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora Core 6 with KDE, no GNOME
2. try setting up country and language in control center (kcontrol)
3. try using kkbswitch, the native kde keyboard switcher or any other tool
No country flags
Country flags should be available
This is an issue from at least FC3 till FC6, haven't checked devel (Fedora 7)
but I guess...
I have found bug #188121 and bug #164705 searching for 'flag'. They are
duplicates of bug #61946, which I can't access. Please include the flags, this
is very annoying and they take just 400K (3.6M on 63G partition) disk space. The
files are /usr/share/locale/l10n/LANGUAGE_2_LETTER_CODE/flag.png and are present
in the KDE for Redhat project's kdebase for example.
for more infos, please take a look at
I can not take a look there ;-) - all I see is "You are not authorized to access
bug #70235.", that's why I opened this bug in the first place (but I guess you
can see it, try as normal user).
I'll reopen it, but feel free to close, I won't complain further. I can fix this
myself (a custom kdebase-flags-1.0.rpm or use the kde-redhat repo), but would
really like to know why...? And what's so secret about a "some icons are
missing" problem? Did I do something wrong?
it's a political issue here. so all flags have been removed.
If you live in a country where people are not scared of looking other countries
flags, instead, you respect them, you may this rpm I made useful:
Ha-ha, 10x, I came out with the same solution, only my version is 1.0 :-)
Debian has non-us repo, maybe livna?
