normal user cannot select a language

Bug #134278 reported by Ian Jackson on 2007-08-23
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

I installed gutsy i386 d-i 20070823 in Dutch (with English keyboard), and then used Systeem / Beeheer / Language support to add Arabic as a supported language. I left Dutch as the default for sessions and the login screen.

I then created a new user, and logged in as that user using the fast user switching applet. I cannot find in the menus any way to change the language used for this new user. There should be a discoverable way (eg, under System / Preferences) for a user to set their own language.

Hello Ian, thank you for posting here

Any user can change his session language with the OPTIONS menu in the login screen (before entering his login&password).


PS: as this is not a bug, I changed the Status to "invalid".
