Description Ting-Wei Lan 2016-01-11 06:12:14 UTC
lease see the attached patch. gsf-office-thumbnailer should call setlocale in main function in order to correctly show translated messages.

Running 'gsf-office-thumbnailer --help' with zh_TW.UTF-8 locale shows:
  gsf-office-thumbnailer [???] Options

  -h, --help                ???????

  -i, --input=filename      Name of file for which to create a thumbnail
  -o, --output=filename     Name of the file to put the thumbnail
  -s, --size=N              Size of thumbnail in pixels; the thumbnail will be at most N*N pixels large

thumbnailer: Call setlocale in main function

It is required to correctly show translated messages on some locales.

This problem has been fixed in our software repository. The fix will go into the next software release. Once that release is available, you may want to check for a software upgrade provided by your Linux distribution.
