Description Megan Bock 2001-08-03 14:44:27 UTC
Description of Problem:
The new Desktop Settings wizard in KDE 2.2 beta 1 does not generate the 
same language options each time you install the OS. Within an 
installation, every account that starts KDE will see the same options, but 
after reinstalling, different options are shown.

How Reproducible:
Consistent within installation. Varies from installation to installation.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start KDE from a user account that has never run KDE.
2. Drop the "Please choose your language" list.
3. Select Other.

Actual Results:
Different results from three different installations. All were installed 
from the same set of Roswell CDs. First installation was text mode, with 
all packages. Second was GUI installation with all groups. Third 
installation was GUI with all groups, with all KDE packages explicitly 
selected. All installations specified US English everywhere possible.

First & third installations: Suggested language was Czech. List also 
showed as options Spansih (es) and Default (C). The "Other" languages 
option popped out a menu that included about 2 dozen languages. UK English 
was an option, but no other English (ie, US English) was listed.

Second installation: This time the only language that appeared in the list 
was "Default (c)". The "Other" list also contained only Default (C).

Expected Results:
- Expected to see same language list each time. 
- Expected "Other" list to have other choices. 
- Expected that suggested language would be based on installation settings.
- Expected that if English is defined as UK, another English option would 
be present.

Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-08-04 22:06:22 UTC
Fixed in 2.2-0.cvs20010801.1 and higher. The problem was that the locale for
English is "C", and just looking if a string contained that brought up "Cs"
(Czech) and "Ca" (Catalan) as possible results.
