Description Patrick Seher 2001-07-08 10:29:00 UTC
(*** This bug was imported into bugs.kde.org ***)

Package:           kcmlocale
Version:           2.0 (using KDE 2.2.0 beta1)
Severity:          wishlist
Installed from:    SuSE
Compiler:          gcc version 2.95.3 20010315 (SuSE)
OS:                Linux (i586) release 2.4.4-4GB
OS/Compiler notes: 


what about a routine that allows to download the selected language with a button "download languages".

You choose language German but don't have installed the files for it. So you could click on the button "download german language".
A the next KDE would download the languages file and execute a program like kpackages to install it.

it would be a nice way to install other languages ;o)

I agree that it would be nice, and I have been thinking about it myself. 
But there are a few problems involved as I see it: 
* KDE Base would have to support a way to install packages 
* KDE would have to know where to get the packages 
* Installing packages normally require root access. 
One way to solve the problems above would be to install the translations for 
the user only in $HOME/.kde/share, but that isn't very nice.

Lubos at openSuse is currently investigating a way to do this, stay tuned :-)

This should be possible to implement using the packagekit stuff. I'll look into it once I get a framework based setup working.

I hope you don't mind me stealing this, John. :-)

Feel free :-)  I seem to recall leaving some stubs in the code for doing this?  I also think Kubuntu has implemented this, so you may want to have a look at their patches
