Comment 1 Havoc Pennington 2001-09-04 16:54:28 EDT
I need to add a line to /etc/X11/gdm/locale.alias. For Russian it is:
russian         ru_RU.ISO-8859-5

What is the equivalent line for ukrainian?
Comment 2 Leonid Kanter 2001-09-04 17:18:39 EDT
No!!! For Russian it must be ru_RU.KOI8-R. See my comments to bug #52381. For
Ukrainian - uk_UA.KOI8-U. ru_RU.ISO-8859-5 lives only on Sun Solaris.
