Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 977833
Anaconda should install language pack
Last modified: 2013-08-02 15:47:25 EDT
Description of problem:
Fedora Live CD's come in English but when you install Fedora from a live cd and select a language it would be nice if the resulting system got full support for that language.
* Post install from KDE spin you still get everything in English (except tty).
* Post install from Desktop you get your language in GNOME but no dictionaries, fonts, or other support.
This could be solved if Anaconda did a post install process of installing the language pack of the language chosen during install with (this would require checks for Internet though):
yum langinstall <locale>
Plus, the way to set the language post install is different for every desktop.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Load Fedora live image
2. Select language other than English
3. Boot into new system
The resulting system is all English (in case of KDE) and in case of GNOME you have no dictionary or other support (although GNOME is translated).
The resulting system should be in the language you selected and it should have full support for it.
Thanks for your report.
This appears to be a duplicate:
Bug 981804 - Even if Fedora main language is set to French, Libreoffice is installed and use English.
Marking as a duplicate of 981804 since there's more info there. 981804 is specifically about libreoffice, but the underlying problem is the same: when and how the langpack packages get installed.
