|0004254||Kali Linux||[All Projects] General Bug||public||2017-09-19 14:20||2017-09-22 11:36|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version||2017.3|
|Summary||0004254: Kali Light login language default to aa_DJ.utf8 AFTER HD install|
|Description||Kali Light login language default to aa_DJ.utf8 AFTER HD install|
This is for Kali Light i386.
For Live version, root login language is set to en_US.utf8.
BUT after W35, INSTALLING to HD the login language is aa_DJ.utf8.
Afar - Djibouti
These are correct:
2017.1 Live en_US.utf8 Installed en_US.utf8
W34 Live en_US.utf8 Installed en_US.utf8
W35 Live en_US.utf8 Installed en_US.utf8
Somewhere after W35 something changed.
I can reset language to en_US.utf8
but on restart it reverts to aa_DJ.utf8
W36 Live en_US.utf8 Installed aa_DJ.utf8
W37 Live en_US.utf8 Installed aa_DJ.utf8
W38 Live en_US.utf8 Installed aa_DJ.utf8
daily 0918 Live en_US.utf8 Installed aa_DJ.utf8
daily 0919 Live en_US.utf8 Installed aa_DJ.utf8
The attached image shows the panel calendar.
AFTER I change aa_DJ.utf8 to en_US.utf8
THEN login as root, the calendar should say September not Waysu.
|Steps To Reproduce||install Kali Light W38 or daily 0919|
allow computer to reboot
at login check language (aa_DJ.utf8)
click panel calendar
This looks weird. You select the language at installation time... it's the first screen at installation time. What value did you pick in that screen?
What's the content of /etc/default/locale after installation?
Can you show us the environment variables set in your graphical session?
Is this only reproducible with the light image?
If yes, it might be a regression/problem of lightdm.
Can you compare the versions of the following packages between the the last working version (W35) and the first broken one (W36)?
> This looks weird. You select the language at installation time... it's the first screen at installation time. What value did you pick in that screen?
I always use these:
1 language: english
2 location: united states
3 keymap: american english
4 time zone: pacific
After new install let restart, then shutdown and startup again.

I have not yet tried other images as Kali light is preferred.
Is there an image you would like me to try? xfce or gnome?
For the following SEE attached files within w35-w36.zip: w35.txt w36.txt

> - live-config
|If zip files are not acceptable, I will post the individual files.|
I do not have an xfce-2017-W35 to test so used xfce-2017.1
default language: en_US.utf8
default language: aa_DJ.utf8
see attached files for requested tests:
Thank you for the data. So this is a regression due to live-build now setting LANG=C.UTF-8 by default and lighdm is unable to cope with that setting:
I have uploaded to Debian live-installer 52 which shall fix this for new installations. On your installed system, please do "dpkg-reconfigure locales" to fix the default locale.
|This should be fixed starting with tomorrow's daily images as I included live-installer 54 in kali-dev.|
