The locale was already there in PCLOS, but not the translations for any programs.
Yes you could
call it rare, unless you live in Uganda
I have just been studying the configuration files in /etc
. PCLOS does things differently to how I first learned them.
It sets up the locale environment via scripts in the /etc/profile.d
directory. To change the locale system-wide (not just the KDE one) you use the file /etc/sysconfig/i18n
. To control just your local settings you create $HOME/.i18n
. I have done this and now the desired behavior.
I am working on getting the basic elements of the base system translated prior the graphical interfaces, so coreutils is getting the first attention.
