Sorry, that would've been useful info. English (US). I haven't tested a recent daily build,so I don't know if this is still a problem or not.

If there are packages missing for language support, this is a question of the per-flavor image seed, not of ubiquity itself. Reassigned.

For English (US) on hirsute, here's the missing packages:

hyphen-en-gb
libreoffice-help-en-us
libreoffice-l10n-en-za
gimp-help-en
thunderbird-locale-en
libreoffice-help-en-gb
wbritish
thunderbird-locale-en-gb
libreoffice-l10n-en-gb
hunspell-en-za
hunspell-en-au
mythes-en-au
hyphen-en-us

hyphen-en-ca

It looks like ubuntu automatically includes these files for a select number of languages.

Should Xubuntu do the same?
