[opensuse-translation] Problems and suggestions about openSUSE localization package installation
Thanks Karl for the reply. I'll post the issue here first.

I'm running into a major issue that makes it really hard for me to use openSUSE. I need to install an additional interface language on my system apart from English, and there is apparently a very good YAST module for this. However, it doesn't actually install the relevant `-lang` packages because it depends on the zypper package recommends, which I have disabled. I tried re-enabling it and re-enabling the language I want, but it only installs a few spellcheck dictionaries and Firefox language packs, but not the profusion of `-lang` packages that I need for each and every GUI app. Then I tried doing a `zypper install-new-recommends`, but I aborted because it wanted to install a whopping 715 new packages for a grand total on the disk of well over **1GB**!!!

I don't really think that the package recommends system is the right tool for installing `-lang` packages for a given language.

Or is there any workaround I can use or some hidden zypp(er) setting that will make it only heed `-lang` recommends and none of the others?

Thanks for any insight.
