Description Michael S. 2013-06-15 18:04:44 UTC
After installation of g-s-d in updates-testing ( gnome-settings-daemon-3.8.3-2.fc19.x86_64 ), I found out that my locales are wrong :

$ env | grep LC   

the '' are wrong, and that's causing lots of issues.

This is caused by /usr/libexec/gnome-settings-daemon-localeexec and the latest backported patch. 

$ gsettings get org.gnome.system.locale region

I think the wrapper script should filter the '.

Seems to be fixed upstream :


Comment 2 Adam Williamson 2013-06-16 16:06:32 UTC
Proposing as a final release blocker to make sure we don't pull this into anything, will affect normal system use most likely.

Comment 5 Michael S. 2013-06-17 17:01:28 UTC
As asked by adam williamson, the main issue caused by tthis are :
- perl software spew 10 to 15 lines of warning, saying they cannot find the local
- man pages are not readable
- mosh, that I use to connect to server, seemed to be broken
- screen ( on a remote session ) was not able to correctly display UTF8

Comment 6 Adam Williamson 2013-06-17 17:06:23 UTC
Discussed at 2013-06-17 blocker review meeting: http://meetbot.fedoraproject.org/fedora-blocker-review/2013-06-17/f19final-blocker-review-6.2013-06-17-16.01.log.txt . Per misc's notes that this breaks lots of different apps, we accept this as a blocker under criterion "All applications listed under the Applications menu or category must withstand a basic functionality test and not crash after a few minutes of normal use." on the basis that it's almost certainly affecting something in that set.

Comment 7 Fedora Update System 2013-06-18 06:22:09 UTC
gnome-settings-daemon-3.8.3-3.fc19 has been pushed to the Fedora 19 stable repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
