Description andré blais 2018-05-30 03:40:31 CEST
Description of problem:
In my case, LANGUAGE=fr_CA.UTF8:fr, and grsync contains support for fr_FR.
grsync displays in English.

However if use
"LANGUAGE=fr_FR grsync",
the French language is displayed as expected.

How reproducible:
Invoke grsync without specifying language, when user's langage is supported by grsync, but grsync specifies a different country code.

What should happen :
If the user's language is supported but not the associated country specified in grsync, as long as the user specifies the language alone, display the user's language.

A workaround when invoking from console :
Use "LANGUAGE=* grsync" to invoke grsync,
where * is the language with the country of grsync

The desktop used is Maté.

Comment 5 Morgan Leijström 2018-06-06 23:15:35 CEST
Language test OK here on 64 bit;
launching "grsync" => my local language, Swedish
"LANGUAGE=en grsync" => English
"LANGUAGE=sv grsync" => Swedish
"LANGUAGE=qq grsync" => English  (stupidity test)
I have not tried to perform syncing, assume andré did that.
