Description Didier G 2009-06-30 17:41:18 EDT
Description of problem:

When trying to create a new event in Sunbird with LANG=fr_FR.UTF-8 I get error message.

If Sunbird is started in terminal with LANG=C it is possible to create new event with no error.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


(same problem with sunbird-1.0-0.3.20090302hg.fc11.i586.rpm)

How reproducible:

Juste try to create a new event

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start Sunbird
2.Click on any place in agenda to create new event 
Actual results:

Message (in french)

Erreur d'analyse XML : entité non définie
Emplacement : chrome://calendar/content/calendar-event-dialog.xul
Numéro de ligne 299, Colonne 29 :                            <menuitem id="file-new-address-menuitem"

Expected results:

Additional info:
Comment 1 bugzilla 2009-07-27 07:50:38 EDT
Can be confirmed for LANG=de_DE.UTF-8 (for both versions)

2nd workaround: start "sunbird -UILocale en"
Seems that all other languages than english are broken?
Comment 2 Didier G 2009-08-18 02:49:30 EDT
I just updated Sunbird to sunbird-1.0-0.5.20090715hg.fc11.i586

Now, with LANG=fr_FR.UTF-8 in environment variables Sunbird fails to start with following message 

Erreur d'analyse XML : entité non définie
Emplacement : chrome://sunbird/content/calendar.xul
Numéro de ligne 277, Colonne 12 :           <menuitem id="calendar-export-calendar-menu"

Sunbird works fine, but in english, if I start it in a terminal with following command :

LANG=C sunbird

As Sunbird is now unusable in other language than english, severity should be raise to high.
Comment 3 bugzilla 2009-08-18 13:35:46 EDT
Again, same for LANG=de_DE.UTF-8 (and maybe others). I totaly agree to raise severity.
Comment 4 Lubomir Rintel 2009-08-18 17:55:36 EDT
Bad news: Raising severity or priority is basically irrelevant
Good news: New package's done. Thanks for the report.
Comment 5 Fedora Update System 2009-08-18 17:58:19 EDT
sunbird-1.0-0.6.20090715hg.fc11 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 11.
Comment 6 Didier G 2009-08-18 20:49:15 EDT
I just get sunbird-1.0-0.6.20090715hg.fc11.i586.rpm from koji :


Both problems are fixed by this update :

- it is possible to start sunbird with LANG=fr_FR.UTF-8
- it is possible to create new event with LANG=fr_FR.UTF-8

Thanks for your prompt answer.
