Patch for sr_RS and sr_ME locales
Comment 2 Milos Komarcevic 2008-01-02 13:56:05 UTC
Any feedback or estimates for applying this change?

Would be great to have it in for 7.4 and the spring 2008 round of distros.
Comment 3 Chusslove Illich 2008-08-06 11:38:09 UTC
Any news on this? Any particular reason the patch is not being applied?

The warning messages that stuff on top of X reports, such as "Qt: Locales not supported on X server", are getting kind of boring.
Comment 4 Goran Rakic 2008-12-22 10:54:14 UTC
This bug is reported in Debian as http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=507940 and in Ubuntu as https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libx11/+bug/299841

It would be great if this patch can be included in next release. Any progress on this?
Comment 5 James Cloos 2008-12-23 04:43:37 UTC
I'll get this pushed.

The patch given in attachment 10560 [details] [review] is broken - it loses some characters
from some other locales:

Comment 8 Milos Komarcevic 2009-03-16 16:26:02 UTC
Alan, the patch seems to be ISO-8859-1 encoded for some reason, I suggest you use iconv to convert it to UTF-8. Otherwise, let me know and I'll resubmit it.
Comment 9 Alan Coopersmith 2009-03-16 16:38:04 UTC
If it was just the encoding of the patch, it wouldn't show those lines
as being edited - it seems to be an encoding problem in the environment
either the editor or diff was run in to generate the patch.

Updated patch

Right you are. Patch reattached with problematic hunks removed, they have no relation to our locale anyway.

Thanks - corrected patch pushed to git master for next libX11 release:

Comment 12 Chusslove Illich 2012-04-08 01:31:18 UTC
It seems some entries are still missing: when starting LibreOffice in
sr_RS.UTF-8@latin locale, it reports "X Window System doesn't support locale
'sr_RS.UTF-8@latin'" and then there are encoding problems inside. I fixed it
by adding this line to /usr/share/X11/locale/locale.dir:

  en_US.UTF-8/XLC_LOCALE: sr_RS.UTF-8@latin

Maybe the following patch would suffice?

Additional entries for sr_RS.UTF-8@latin.
Comment 14 Fiable.biz 2013-05-25 13:30:00 UTC
Mongolian from Mongolia is also lacking in locale.dir and compose.dir.
See the last comment of

Do I need to open a new bug for this, or do we change the bug title?
