I don't recall finding a way to do that.  However, the languages choice
on the GDM greeter screen (where you first login) lets you pick your
locale.  And does so, whether or not there's a specific language pack
installed for it.  e.g. You can set en-AU, and get it, even if there's
no Australian-specific English language pack on the box.

I agree, and it's an old complaint that it was difficult to add such
things post-install.  You're also out of luck if there isn't a package
for the locale that you want.

(This box runs Centos 5.0, my others still run FC 4, 5, 6, & 7, in case that's
 important to the thread.)

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.
I read messages from the public lists.
