Comment 1 Lawrence Lim 2008-07-16 03:05:59 EDT
is as_IN language support installed?
Comment 2 lihuang 2008-07-16 05:50:57 EDT
In tamil (ta_IN ) locale . GTK warning also be given . while the others south
Asia locale have no problem.

This msg also be given when launch other application,for example gedit.evince

( I am not sure about how to comfirm language support is installed or not
# rpm -qa | grep tamil
is it mean tamil support installed? )

Comment 3 A S Alam 2008-07-16 05:56:56 EDT
it is GTK issue in mentioned locale, issue should be file again gtk2 instead for
f irefox, it can be tested for gedit also and please try to query for gtk with
above error.

(not for RHEL, but have a reference)
Comment 5 A S Alam 2008-07-16 06:05:35 EDT
Adding ta_IN languages and l10n list for look up issue.
Comment 6 Ankit Patel 2008-07-16 07:04:36 EDT
Can I have the respective as.po and ta.po files?

When I grabbed the source package from
, couldn't find as.po file. and ta.po file was also very old.

So, I doubt, the package structure and/or the files are wrong/old, I don't know
what it is now.

Requesting the package maintainers to provide the location of the latest .po
files for Assamese (as.po) and Tamil (ta.po)
Comment 8 Yolkfull Chow 2008-07-17 01:30:06 EDT
#rpm -q gtk2

BTW,this is the latest build in our brew.
Comment 9 Amitakhya Phukan 2008-07-17 02:43:38 EDT

I have corrected the translations that were submitted as a tarball in bug
218598. also, you can use the translations that I have submitted upstream in
the GNOME repositories.

This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion, but this component is not scheduled to be updated in
the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. If you would like
this request to be reviewed for the next minor release, ask your
support representative to set the next rhel-x.y flag to "?".
Comment 15 Jens Petersen 2010-04-14 01:01:03 EDT
Is this fixed in Fedora?

Assamese (as.po), Tamil (ta.po) translation fixed patch


Applying this patch against "po" directory of gtk2 package would solve the issue.

FYI: we (localization team) are following similar approach of providing updated translations for RHEL6 as well, which is documented here: https://engineering.redhat.com/trac/LocalizationServices/wiki/L10nRHEL6TranslationBugs

Comment 18 Jens Petersen 2010-04-20 03:11:14 EDT
Thank - probably unlikely to get fixed in RHEL5 IMHO.

Most important thing is that it is fixed in upstream, Fedora and RHEL 6,
which looks to be the case based on comment 9.
