Bug Description

I've install gimp in my french Kubuntu 5.04
Gimp is in english. I search a solution on the web, and I find that language-pack-fr
and language-support-fr must be install to have gimp in french for ubuntu, but in my
kubuntu this packages are installed.
In my konsole, the result of echo $LANG :
I test this on 3 others Kubuntu, I've same problem.
Thanks you very much for a solution.
