Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 457365
Use Czech instead of English
Last modified: 2008-08-01 05:55:17 EDT
Description of problem:
Some application use Czech instead of US English.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Set as a first language US English, as a second Czech. Apply changes. There
should be used English everywhere - menus etc.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run konsole
2. su -
3. there is heslo instead of password, also mc is in Czech for non-root user.
Mix of Czech and English in different programmes
Use only English.
I try to restart some programmes and for me are in Czech virt-manager, xchat,
konsole. Thunderbird, konqueror, firefox,... are using proper English localization.
Whatever package this is caused by, kde-l10n can't really be it. Reassigning to
kdelibs for now.
All the affected programs are non-KDE programs (in the case of Konsole,
the "su -" process running inside it is non-KDE, and that's what's showing the
password prompt), so it looks like somehow LANG isn't set correctly. Maybe KDE
4.1 is setting LANG incorrectly? Is this a new issue with 4.1, i.e. are you
sure this worked in 4.0.x? I couldn't find a change which may be causing this
while browsing KDE SVN.
I had this problem before in KDE4.0, but in less application. Maybe the
localization team make more work in last months.
When you make such a language-related change, you get a warning dialog about
settings being applied on next login, this is normal. Some translations cannot
be applied on the fly as they come from .desktop files or other shared catalogs
that are already loaded in memory.
