ROSA Linux Bugzilla – Bug 617
LANG option not working for application
Last modified: 2012-12-18 18:59:27 MSK
Description of problem:
Any programs running from terminal emulator with LANG option not changing locale.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
ROSA Marathon 2012, KDE 4.8.3
F.ex: Run Konsole. Typing: LANG=en_GB.UTF-8 firefox but it will launch with Russian locale.
confirmed, same behaviour on my pc
Try using LANGUAGE instead LANG.
not help for me
for some application working LC_ALL= option, but is applied not for all apps.
Is en_GB.UTF-8 locale available? Check `locale -a' output. Is firefox-en_GB package installed?
BTW English localisation files from most packages are not being installed until you have locales-en package.
locales-en and locales-ru packages installed. en-GB locale installed:
locale -a output:
See LANG=en_GB.UTF-8 locale
Only LANG switch, by other LC variables not
LC_ALL working for firefox. But not for Kopete, for example.
In KDE you need change lang and restart X-server - only after that language options will implement. KDE and it's related apps not use standart LANG/LC mechanism, as i'm remember.
