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. > More to the point, it would seem sensible to me if it at least offered > the user to install more locales or provided a pointer on how to > install more locales. 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.)
