Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubiquity

please see the screenshot: the language combo is automatically sized to the longest language name. But this is wrong, as it only recognizes the closed combo - if you click on it, there is also the vertical scrollbar to draw - and therefore many of the languages are cut off (with ... between the letters, see screenshot).
In some cases, you can't even distinguish two similar written languages (see screenshot, "Slo...ina").

A workaround would be to set it on a fixed size, there is plenty of space.
Or Add the width of the scrollbar to the width.

Small bug, but smoother KDE experience.

Oh, I could report hundreds of this tiny bugs in KDE that would make it MUCH smoother.

Two options:

a) make the combobox wider
b) Get rid of the combobox altogether and dream up a new superior interface (popupish) which can make perfect use of available screen real estate and provide additional features such as filtering

I'd go for b personally.
