GNOME Bugzilla – Bug 681084
Should use packagekit to add language support
Last modified: 2021-06-09 16:00:16 UTC
Right now in the region panel, if a user chooses a language or input source they don't get things like spell checking dictionaries and other language support packages installed.
We should probably have some packagekit integration to make this more seamless, especially since install media is often space constrained and does ship these addons out of the box.
See a thread on fedora-desktop-list here:
This should really be part of the installation, IMO. CC:'ing designers.
It's pretty comparable to fonts I think. So might may sense to do "just in time" and not in the control-center.
*** Bug 645879 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
GNOME is going to shut down bugzilla.gnome.org in favor of gitlab.gnome.org.
As part of that, we are mass-closing older open tickets in bugzilla.gnome.org
which have not seen updates for a longer time (resources are unfortunately
quite limited so not every ticket can get handled).
If you can still reproduce the situation described in this ticket in a recent
and supported software version, then please follow
and create a new enhancement request ticket at
Thank you for your understanding and your help.
