Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 56682
use local decimal signs and time separators
Last modified: 2007-03-26 23:50:01 EDT
Description of Problem: The installer doesn't use L10N adapted decimal
signs and time separators
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 7.2
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run (graphical) installer
2. Choose a certain language
3. Check the figures
Actual Results: e.g. 1,000,000 bytes ; 1:00:10 remaining
Expected Results: e.g. 1 000 000 bytes ; 1.00.10 ...
Each language should have a table of settings
Additional Information: This may not seem very important, but if you have
already gone half-way by translating the dialogs, why not make it complete?
I would need to know which languages are appropriate for that notation. Can you
help me out there?
Well I've looked around the web and found nothing. :(
But since KDE allows these kind of settings in their control panel, they're
likely to have some resources. I wouldn't know exactly where to go
unfortunately, but I'll look around.
Maybe the easiest way (although not so convenient) would be to open the control
panel in Windows, and choose National Settings (or something like that).
Then while browsing the different locales, these items are displayed.
One thing only, I don't think this affects the time separator.
Otherwise there must be some fact book or something covering this.
You can get all the information from glibc's locale database
(setlocale(), strftime(), printf() with "%'f"), all you need
is the right LC_xx value.
I have no idea how difficult is this in Python, but I assume
it can be done.
