Bug Description

just the same as bug 1404947

LC_ALL="" LANG=de_DE.UTF-8 LC_MESSAGES=C hedgewars

that should run the standard english version of the program interface but in fact the German version is shown. Check "man 7 locale" for the hierarchy of locale-related environment variables.

Thanks, Locutus.

Thanks to you, unfortunately I looked at the code but this seems an upstream issue, so we can fix in the next release, if upstream looks at it. thanks for the report

mmm seems that there is no bug...

do you have language-pack-de-base installed?
I guess the package is needed to set the locale.

After moving my .hedgewars config dir I tried to reproduce and I can switch correctly between italian end english (the two locale I use on my machine)

I think you misunderstand the bug. My "complaint" is apparently the opposite of what you think it is. Please re-read my initial report.

looks like upstream doesn't care much about delivering quality software, more concerned with closing tickets prematurely.

I don't think so, they always reopen when there is really a bug ;)

Hello Rolf, we did a lot of work wrt LC stuff, can we close this one, or is it still an issue with BIONIC?
