            Bug ID: 312419
           Summary: [wish list] Internationalization: digiKam in English
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: digikam
           Version: 2.6.0
          Hardware: Ubuntu Packages
                OS: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: setup
          Assignee: digikam-devel at kde.org
          Reporter: antoine.messiah at free.fr

I installed digiKam on a computer with Ubuntu 10.04 in French. All my other
application are in French, except when there is no translation.

It was impossible to switch digiKam from English to French, until I came across
a CLOSED bug (that is, a bug invisible with default search option) reported for
Ubuntu 11.x and digiKam in German
(https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=278329). I was able to switch to French
after installing "language-pack-kde-fr-base".

I would recommend that this closed bug stays visible with default search
options, and/or goes to the main documentation since it explains how to solve
the issue. The FAQ "Is Digikam available in my language ?"
(http://www.digikam.org/node/167) does not help at all, since it does not
explain how to solve the "language pack" problem.

I think that a dependence with "language-pack-kde-<language_initials>-base"
should be checked or created when one want to install digiKam, and/or a message
should pops-up when one tries to change language (help menu) but has no choice
other choice than English.
