3. Start KDE application (for example Konqueror) -> it will be in English language
Installed KDE/QT are in English language, not in system default (in my system -
yum should install package kde-i18n-[language] too (according to system language
In Ubuntu is the same problem:
But in Ubuntu when I open language selection in Gnome menu – there will be
message that not all language files are installed and then system will install
missing files automaticly.
In Fedora after start system-config-language -> nothing happend...
I must install kde-i18n-Polish manually.
It looks like bug with comps file
Daniel, if you have a chance to try - is it better with F9?
Best way to do this is to specify two yum groups at once:
# yum group install kde-desktop polish-support
or install the groups in that order.
Does that help?
I installed default F9 + yum update + livna (nVidia).
Then I installed two QT/KDE applications: smplayer and krusader.
Both are in Polish language, so It's good. But not all KDE components are in
Polish - for example when I open file properties in krusader.
I'm on holidays - I will check it better when I back.
@Comment #3 From Jens Petersen
"# yum group install kde-desktop polish-support"
But it install all KDE environment, doesn't it?

Right so after installing you applications you can run
"yum groupinstall polish-support".
Probably a yum plugin could help with this and langpacks for other apps too.

True. After installing that group - everything is OK.
But it should be done by yum automaticly when I installed krusader...

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Bill recently posted an initial prototype to fedora-devel-list:
*** Bug 475127 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Re: the duplicated bug, the plugin wouldn't work for that as it's currently written, as it's only for adding packages where the language code is part of the package name. It doesn't handle all conditional cases in comps.
Yep sure, but I think it could be expanded with some work to cover most required cases.
(I just followed up belatedly to your original post on fedora-devel-list too.)
Creating https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/YumLangpackPlugin for this.
yum-langpacks submitted for package review: bug 536737.
yum-langpacks is now in rawhide please try it out.
