Description Alexander Potashev 2009-12-30 00:45:36 UTC
Version:           2.2-GIT (using 4.3.85 (KDE 4.3.85 (KDE 4.4 Beta2)), Gentoo)
Compiler:          x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-gcc
OS:                Linux (x86_64) release 2.6.32

The combo box in the Wikipedia applet settings has only English, French and German. There is no way to set any other Wikipedia locale, but it's a bit strange.

Just to let you know I'm planning to do something about this for the next release.
Comment 2 Dotan Cohen 2010-06-17 16:43:45 UTC
In my opinion the Wikipedia configuration should support any arbitrary locale, not just preconfigured locales.

Additionally, it would be great if one could set multiple locales if information is not found. I have music in six languages, less than half of the artists in my collection is likely to be found in any particular wikipedia locale. Something like "he, en, ar, ro, ru, de" for searching the Hebrew wikipedia first, then if noting is found searching the English wikipedia, then Arabic, Romanian, Russian, and lastly German. The UI for this could be a simple text field.
