Bug Description

This is for the default locale, not a known problem for the user settings.

I have had strange "ghost" problems.

# GNOME problems

GNOME installs to Taiwan Chinese with no Mandarin input I recognize.

I must install gcin according to the instructions a Taiwanese student introduced me to here: https://github.com/inkVerb/Vubuntu-info/blob/master/verbs/gcinGNOME

gcin has a default method, the only method Taiwanese can use. No gcin, no Taiwanese users. I have mentioned this in the daily email discussion and the team did note it.

# MyPaint

I first noticed the locale problem when MyPaint wouldn't start on my x64 bit Ubuntu (Unity) machine, but would on my x32 bit GNOME machine. I've had the problem on x64 GNOME machines also. When I opened mypaint from the x64-unity terminal, I got an error message that lzh_TW wasn't accepted by mypaint or something.

I changed the default locale to en_US and MyPaint opens with no problem on x64 Ubuntu.

# Summary

That's all I saw and know. Love you all.
