Bug ID: 1040238
Summary: No localisation for LibreOffice if user changes their
preferred language and l10n is not already installed.
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE Distribution
Version: Leap 42.3
Hardware: Other
OS: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: LibreOffice
Assignee: bnc-team-screening@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

## Overview

In the following scenario/user story, a non-root user does not get their
preferred language in LibreOffice:

1. Install with system language English. Create a user without admin
privileges.
2. The user changes the desktop language to the one they prefer (in Gnome
settings).
3. Open LibreOffice.

## Actual result

LibreOffice opens in English because the locale that the user selected is not
installed. A user without admin privileges cannot change this.

## Expected result

LO opens in the locale that the user preferred, just like it works for most
other apps.

## Build date and hardware

Build 0246 on 64bit laptop, installed from USB/DVD iso.

## Additional information

Not sure how to solve this in the general case.

Other packages (e.g. Firefox, Inkscape, Eye of Gnome, Okular) have their
translations in a single package (which is installed with the base package).

The only preinstalled apps on Gnome for which a language change English ->
German did not work were LibreOffice (l10n not installed) and Qt 4 Settings (no
translations available).

The localisation packages for LO are in the Productivity/Office/Suite package
group, whereas most translation packages are in the System/Localization group.
