GDM Language list...



Hi,

A non-technical Fedora desktop user chooses X language (say Hindi) while logging in assuming that he will get everything working in Hindi (e.g. technically fonts, input methods, rendering, localized applications like Firefox, Openoffice, evolution, thunderbird, etc working). After logging in, he realize that most of the things are not working. e.g. Openoffice is entirely in English, Inputting (in Hindi) is not working, applications like gedit, nautilus showing square boxes instead of Hindi text. After this experience, person would definitely ask a question, why there is an option to choose a language even if there is no support for that language enabled?

So, to answer that question,

1. to all: Should we change the list of languages dynamically from GDM login screen to satisfy the end users' (local language users') needs? 2. to GDM maintainers: Is it possible to change the list of languages dynamically (based on the language-supports installed) on the GDM login screen?

Thanks!
