Description Olaf Fraczyk 2007-06-22 09:47:57 UTC
Description of problem:
The directories are localized on disk

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:

Expected results:
Having localized files/directories on disk will allways cause problems.
What if I want to have 2 concurrent sessions with different locale? What if I
switch locales between sessions - rename? 
For example if I change from pl_PL to en_US:
How do you know what to do if I have ~/Music and ~/Muzyka directories already?
And what happens if I manually change in my private users config to some totally
different name?
It looks really messy.

Comment 1 Alexander Larsson 2007-06-25 09:48:42 UTC
This has been discussed a lot previously, and the decision has been made already.

Comment 2 Olaf Fraczyk 2007-06-25 11:23:19 UTC
It doesn't mean that the decision was right.
If you want it to keep it closed feel free. But it won't make it working better.
