Bug Description

Binary package hint: language-selector

When starting up language-selector, there is a "Apply sistem-wide..." button to use "the same language choice for startup and the login screen".

When I see the ellipsis in the button's description, I expect to see a dialog opening up, as per the general convention.

However, it seems that what this button does is just apply the settings without furter info or required user input, so I think the ellipsis should simply be removed from the button's label.

If you haven't authenticated with gksu lately, it will prompt you for your password to do so. Does that count? ;)

I'm not sure the prompt is properly loading. I've tried this:

1. Open language-selector
2. Click on "Apply sistem-wide..."
3. No prompt appears
4. Open synaptic
5. The gksu prompt appears

If it doesn't already, perhaps it might be worth using policykit instead of gksu.

I agree on the ellipses thing, and will propose the change for Natty.

  [ Gunnar Hjalmarsson ]
  * LanguageSelector/gtk/GtkLanguageSelector.py:
    - Show only options corresponding to available translations in the
      combo box on language-selector's "Language" tab (LP: #693337).
  * LanguageSelector/LanguageSelector.py:
    - Skip the encoding part in the dmrc "Language" value. It's not
      a locale name, so let's not give the impression it is.
  * data/LanguageSelector.ui:
    - Clearer labels to describe the second ("Text") tab.
    - Icon added to taskbar. Thanks to Pavol Klačanský (LP: #648109).
    - Texts that inform the user about the need to restart for changes
      to system settings to take effect (LP: #127356, #612991).
    - Ellipses removed from the labels on the "Apply System-Wide"
      buttons (LP: #531799).
    - Layout tweaking of the "Format" (previously "Text") tab
      (LP: #697606).
  * data/main-countries:
    - Provide main or origin country for languages with multiple country
      codes present among the languages' available locales.
  * LanguageSelector/utils.py:
    - Take main country code into account when language2locale()
      generates a locale name for LC_MESSAGES.
    - language2locale() rewritten to make use of other language-selector

  [ Martin Pitt ]
  * LanguageSelector/gtk/GtkLanguageSelector.py: Update ListStore construction
    to also work with the next pygobject release.
