Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 459882
selected language not shown in panel selector
Last modified: 2015-01-14 18:21:40 EST
A computer has a system wide language and a user has their own language, which might be the same.
The gdm screen in F10 no longer allows the user to set their language on login, and there seems to be no way to change it from the gui per user.
You mean the language selector doesn't appear in the bottom panel after you selected a user in the user list ?
I certainly does here...
I will test this soon. gdm is broken (missing gnome-session). Not sure if this is a dependency problem in the rpm.
Am installing now.
Ah yes it works with gdm. Not tested kdm though.
The selector appears, but it doesn't work. You can't select another keyboard layout or language and have it actually be selected.
Ugh. Okay, it does work, but it appears not to work.
i.e. you select "German" or whatever, and it still says "USA". Login however, and you have German.
Keyboard is a bit b0rked though - the altgr keys don't work.
Not having a pipe key in linux makes it pretty useless :)
On closer inspection the keyboard selector is actually just broken. It doesn't do what I tell it.
Please try to be precise.
What do you select in the keyboard selector, and what is the effect of that selection ?
Do you have the selected keyboard layout in the password entry ?
Do you have another keyboard layout in the session ?
say in the session ?

I can reproduce this. Probably any other issues should be moved to a separate bug?
do you have a ~/.dmrc file ?
what are the permissions on your home directory ?
do things start working better when you change the permissions to 755 ?

Yes. Layout=us :/

No they don't. It still shows USA and I actually get USA, as before.
Still trying to understand what this bug is all about...
Are you complaining that if you
a) select a user
b) wait for choosers to appear
c) select "Other..." from the language chooser
d) pick a language from the appearing dialog, click ok
the new language does not show up in the chooser ?
I can reproduce that.
Jon, it seems that the chooser dialog only chooses something if the treeview has the focus when the ok button is clicked.
Double-clicking an item does not work anymore either.
Fixed upstream. Will appear in rawhide shortly.
