screenshot of the problem
Description of problem:
I have installed F19 with Marathi language and after login i changed language to English and then i log off and then login into system again.
At the time of login, a pop comes with message "do you wan't to keep old names or new names of the system folder".
I chose the option "new names" i.e English names
After this step, all the name of system folders(Desktop,...) had changed except Pictures,a new folder named Pictures has created instead of renaming the old folder "छायाचित्र" (which is a pictures in English")
Please not that i had stored few pictures in that folder.
I am attaching screen shot for the bug.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install F19 with Marathi language
2. Change the language to English
3. After login with new language a pop box comes up
4: Choose new language settings
Name of system folders(Desktop,...) had changed except folder Pictures,a new folder named Pictures has created instead of renaming the old folder "छायाचित्र" (which is a pictures in English")
New folder should not get created
Me too able to reproduce this problem.
I feel basically problem happens, when there is some content in your existing folder.
/home/user/Downloads folder has some content
/home/user/Pictures folder is empty
In above case, when i am changing locale from en to mr, it is properly converting
1. Pictures folder name to Marathi locale name.
2. But it is keeping Downloads folder and creating one new folder with localized name of Download. (Bug)
This is intentional, afair - it was deemed too risky to move existing content, so we just create new folders.
Alex confirms my memory: Given that this is a very rare situation, and moving the content has risks, we decided not to do it.
We could perhaps do better wrt. explaining the situation in the dialog.
I'll close this bug for now, since I don't envision me or Alex to work on it.
Yes, considering this risk me too agree with this.
