Last modified: 2013-04-30 18:56:02 EDT
Description of problem:
When launch firefox in terminal with locale as_IN.utf-8, following GTK warning
will be presented:
(firefox:14890): Gtk-WARNING **: Whoever translated default:LTR did so wrongly.
Launch firefox with other locales will not get this warning message.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. export LANG to as_IN
2. launch firefox in terminal
This also happen on x86_64 arch.
is as_IN language support installed?
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? )
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
Ref bug: Bug 431988: [as_IN] Error in Translated file
(not for RHEL, but have a reference)
Adding ta_IN languages and l10n list for look up issue.
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)
#rpm -q gtk2
BTW,this is the latest build in our brew.
i couldn't find gtk2 in the GNOME repository .. i found gtk+ .. i have updated
the translations for assamese (as-IN) for gtk+ head, and branches 2-10 and 2-12.
please get back to me for any further info.

Updated assamese translations for gtk2
I have corrected the translations that were submitted as a tarball in bug

the GNOME repositories.

Updated ta.po file
I correct the default:LTR string in the ta.po file and attached
reproduce on RHEL5.2 Client x86_64
# uname -a

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 "?".
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
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.
