1. Use a localized KDE version (German in my example)

Place directories (applications - places) that are localized (like "Dokumente" instead of "Documents") are highlighted as a changed setting. If I reset them to the presets they get changed to English path names.

Take localization into consideration

Did not find the correct KCM, so filed under general.

We hardcode the default settings in there. On my system I have a /etc/xdg/user-dirs.defaults which is also not localized. Maybe we could abuse xdg-users-dirs-update --dummy-output or should we just wrap the hardcoded strings in i18n calls?

Desktop path settings: translate default paths using xdg-user-dir translations

Reuse xdg-user-dir translation, this makes plasma-desktop depend on xdg-user-dir which is already implicitly the case.

This bug persists on neon unstable. My location is pt-br.

$ localectl
   System Locale: LANG=pt_BR.UTF-8

Comment 5 David Redondo 2022-04-22 18:12:38 UTC
seems to work for me still with German

Does it depend on locale?
Comment 6 Claudius Ellsel 2022-08-29 16:41:27 UTC
With German, this works for me. Is this still an issue with other locales?
Comment 7 Patrick Silva 2022-08-29 20:45:50 UTC
I have changed Plasma language from American English to brazilian portuguese, but the places in Locations KCM are still in english (is this expected?) and they are highlighted. After click on 'Defaults' button, the places change to brazilian portuguese and they are no longer highlighted.
