<onixx>
good evening everyone. I am trying to set the LANGUAGE variable to fr_CA:fr can this be done in lts.conf ?

<alkisg>
onixx: LDM_LANGUAGE=fr_CA:fr
05:42
<onixx>
alkisg: thanks. I have tried this and it does not work.. for some reasons, this sets the LANG variable
05:42
alkisg: then LANGUAGE variable is left untouched whatever I do
05:42
<alkisg>
onixx: hmm yeah you're probably right
05:42
Btw, why do you need to set the LANGUAGE, isn't LANG enough?
05:43
For example, display managers only allow setting LANG, not LANGUAGE...
05:44
<onixx>
looks like its not... unless I am doing something wrong... I installed xfce4 and it is 50% french ;-) for some reasons
05:44
<alkisg>
Are you using a chroot, or ltsp-pnp?
05:44
What's the output of sudo ltsp-info
05:44
<onixx>
alkisg: a chroot
05:44
<alkisg>
OK
05:45
So run: sudo ltsp-chroot check-language-support
05:45
What's the output of that? Put it to pastebin
05:45
<onixx>
don't have that command...check-language-support
05:46
<alkisg>
Ah sorry, are you using thin clients or fat clients?
05:46
<onixx>
thin
05:46
<alkisg>
ok... why? :D
05:46
What's the output of this, directly on the server then? check-language-support
05:47
<onixx>
alkisg: testing for now
05:47
not much firefox-locale-en firefox-locale-fr language-pack-en language-pack-gnome-en language-pack-gnome-fr wamerican wbritish wfrench ... probably missing something with xfce4
05:48
<alkisg>
Those are localization packages that you're missing
05:48
run sudo apt install $(check-language-support) on the server
05:48
Then try again to login on the thin client
05:49
<onixx>
alkisg: makes a lot of sense !
05:49
<alkisg>
:)
05:52
<onixx>
alkisg: alkisg : weird... still not 100%.
05:53
<alkisg>
And is it 100% on the server itself?
05:53
<onixx>
alkisg: server is english. (ubuntu server, no X)
05:53
alkisg: well it has X now but never ran it
05:54
<alkisg>
onixx: ok, how can we learn if it's missing translations in ubuntu in general, or if it's an issue with ltsp?
05:54
E.g. do you have another installation without ltsp that actually has all the translations?
05:56
<onixx>
alkisg: hold on :-) I did a LOT of screwing around... let restore the VM and try this again
06:01
alkisg: ok, I am restored now.. I have added the LANG and LDM_LANGUAGE vars in lts.conf
06:01
alkisg: adding language-pack-fr now
