Create Custom Locale in YaST

Feature state

Rejected Information


In Gnome there is no easy way (GUI) to set date and time format independent of desktop language. I agree with the use of the locale framework in the Gnome desktop because locale should affect all apps, not just desktop ones, and I hope that KDE follows suit. However, regardless of what Gnome or KDE decides, a tool in YaST to create a custom locale (for apps using locale) and to at the same time set KDE desktop preferences or something similar would be benificial within YaST. In Suse 10.1 Gnome desktop and SLED 10 Gnome desktop it is very cumbersome to choose a default en_CA locale, US English keyboard, en_UK desktop language (since UK English spelling is closer to Canadian spelling), a Weekday Month Day, Year long format an ISO-8601 short date format (i.e. YYYY-MM-DD), and a 24hr time format. On other operating systems and in the KDE desktop it is easy to specify these regional settings (although the KDE settings only apply to KDE apps as far as I know). If there is already an easy way to set date format settings then please help me find it.

Stano, I am cleaning up my bugs and finally got to this one.

I think this could be useful indeed. A way to setup system-wide locale settings that would apply across the desktop environment and any other applications.

This probably needs to be moved to Fate. Could we look into it for openSUSE 11.2 and SP1?

Yes, it could be beneficial - on the other hand creating custom locales is something that needs special care when glibc is updated and is only usefull in some exotic use cases. Let's reject this for openSUSE.
