Subject: [gentoo-user] /usr/locale vs /usr/share/locale
Date: Mon, 05 Aug 2013 12:17:22
1 Hello list,
3 I have noticed today this folder on my laptop: /usr/locale. It
4 contains multiple subfolders-languages with LC_MESSAGES.
6 I wonder why these LC_MESSAGES are situated there, and not at
7 /usr/share/locale, as on my other machine with Gentoo installed.
9 Equery says that /usr/locale belongs to gnome-icon-theme 3.6.2. But
10 the same gnome-icon-theme 3.6.2 didn't create /usr/locale on my other
11 machine, created /usr/share/locale instead. Reemerging
12 gnome-icon-theme didn't help.
14 Gentoo Localization HowTo says: "The locales and their data are part
15 of the system library and can be found at /usr/share/locale on most
16 systems". I can't figure out why the laptop hasn't been included in
17 "most systems".
19 Which options related to locales may I have configured otherwise? In
20 my opinion, installations are near equal. Arch - i686, locale - utf-8,
21 desktop - Openbox. The world file is almost the same; some
22 laptop-specific packages added. The only difference that I remember: I
23 installed many packages on the laptop in another order.
