Thanks for the report
Known, see bug #494551 comment #5

Comment 2 Eric Tanguy 2009-06-10 13:17:58 UTC
It's an annoying problem for a released version please try to find a solution.

Comment 3 Lubomir Rintel 2009-06-10 13:49:51 UTC
I'll fix this once the stable version of code we use is actually released with langpacks.

Feel free to fix it yourself though :)

Comment 4 Eric Tanguy 2009-12-09 15:15:58 UTC
I reassign this bug to fedora 12. I see in changelog that langpacks was updated at least twice so we can have translation now ?

Comment 5 Eric Tanguy 2010-01-12 18:53:25 UTC
Lightning 1.0b1 is officially released with all languages available see : https://addons.mozilla.org/fr/thunderbird/addon/2313

Comment 6 Eric Tanguy 2010-06-13 16:51:32 UTC
The problem is still here in fedora 13.

Comment 7 tuxor 2010-07-15 18:17:46 UTC
Still here and really missing a workaround. The current version of the thunderbird-lightning package is 1.0b2pre and you don't get any xpi for that anywhere on the internet to extract language-packs from it.
I tried to replace the *-en-US.jar in chrome-directory, but especially replacing "calendar-en-US.jar" lets Lightning crash. (I used the current xpi's contents for replacement.)

Comment 8 Eric Tanguy 2010-07-23 07:31:11 UTC
thunderbird-lightning-1.0-0.26.b2pre.fc13.i686 is still only in english whereas the "official" b2 version contain all language pack. Why ??

Comment 9 tuxor 2011-03-26 09:34:09 UTC
Maybe you should also consider this bug:


Gerard Ryan posted a link to a working multilang-xpi.

Comment 10 Eric Tanguy 2011-06-07 05:00:18 UTC
two years after the initial report the problem is still here!

Comment 11 Eric Tanguy 2011-07-09 06:43:38 UTC
Since july 2

Lightning 1.0 beta 4 is available for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux in 37 different languages including English

So it could be interesting to update lightning and make all language available

Comment 12 Remi Collet 2011-07-20 06:43:09 UTC
A working solution:

Need to extract the langpack from the upstream XPI, as I don't find upstream source tarball (but langpack, are source)
