Description Kristoffer Grundström 2018-12-02 01:34:44 CET
Description of problem: This is just a minor irritating issue, but when I install Cauldron and log into the Desktop Environment called MATE I get the Desktop folder in $HOME called Desktop when it should be named Skrivbord as I use Swedish as a system language. If I create a new user account and login to GNOME the folder is called Skrivbord as it's supposed to.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 2.18

How reproducible: All the time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download, burn and install Cauldron using the net installation iso.
2. Choose Swedish as language in the installer.
3. Install MATE, GNOME and Cinnamon as Desktop Environments.
4. In the installation summary step double check that the keyboard settings are set to Swedish as well.
5. Login to the MATE desktop.
6. Open the Home folder on the desktop.
7. Notice how the Desktop folder with Swedish locale settings is called Desktop instead of Skrivbord as it's supposed to be named.

The weird thing is that when I open the Files manager and look at the side panel it says Skrivbord correctly.

Assigning to all packagers collectively, because there is currently no registered maintainer for Mate.

CC'ing Stig and André. 

@ Umeaboy

We've had mixed versions of Mate in Cauldron. That was reverted, but if you did already install some Mate 1.21.x packages, then you'll need to downgrade those to version 1.20.x

You can check with 

  urpmq --not-available | grep mate

whether you have Mate 1.21.x packages that need to be downgraded.

Do you indeed have such 1.21.x packages and does downgrading them solve this bug?

Is there an easy way to collectively downgrade them all at once without breaking the system or is it safe to downgrade them one by one?

using

urpmi --downgrade {list of packages to downgrade}

should work.
You might/probably have to log out/log in after for everything to work ok after.

Sorry, my comment without checking probably contributed to the problem.

Hi.

I see the same in a fresh install of Mate in a VM. My guess is that there may be a bug somewhere else and has nothing to do with Mate.

Also tried with LxQT and it's the same there.

It _may_ be related to bug 22889. Can't be sure, tho.

Cheers,
Stig

Comment 9 Stig-Ørjan Smelror 2018-12-04 23:48:34 CET
Forgot to mention that I'm using Norwegian (nb_NO.UTF-8).
Comment 10 Stig-Ørjan Smelror 2018-12-06 23:22:02 CET
Even when using English as the main language and then after first boot, change to Norwegian, the folder "Desktop" is still there.

I got a popup window asking me if I wanted to rename them and I agreed to that.

There is a folder named "Skrivebord" now as well as the mentioned "Desktop" in my home directory.

Don't know which one is in use.

Cheers,
Stig
Comment 11 Stig-Ørjan Smelror 2018-12-07 00:07:54 CET
It's actually present in MGA6 as well.

Running in VMware 15.

Looks like it may be a long-standing issue.

Can somebody else please confirm?

Cheers,
Stig

The issue is back when I create an even newer account, but this time the path is called Desktop and not the icon on the actual desktop in MATE.
