Ignore unneeded localization updates in Sulfur [Solved]

Postby gallienus » Sun May 31, 2009 2:38

Is there a way to get sulfur to ignore the localization packages for kde and openoffice? All I need are the packages for the US.

This is not official but you can try to edit /etc/make.conf to only show en_US or similar using a wiki guide from gentoo.org or similar.

You might have to run
locale-gen
Code: Select all
tweak Iso # locale-gen --help
Usage: locale-gen [options] -- [localedef options]

Generate locales based upon the config file /etc/locale.gen.

Options:
    -k, --keep               Don't nuke existing locales
    -d, --destdir <dir>      Use locale data in specified DESTDIR tree
    -c, --config <config>    Use specified config instead of default locale.gen
    -l, --list               List all the locales to be generated
    -a, --ask                Ask before generating each locale
    -A, --all                Pretend the locale list contains all locales
    -u, --update             Only generate locales that are missing
    -G, --generate <locale>  Generate specified locale (one shot)
    -j, --jobs <num>         Number of locales to generate at a time (parallel)
    -q, --quiet              Only show errors
    -V, --version            Meaningless version information
    -h, --help               Show this help cruft

Localedef Options:
    By default, -c is passed to localedef.

For more info, see the locale-gen(1) and locale.gen(8) manpages.
tweak Iso #


Equo should pick up on this and use changed locale info next time.

There should be a few other ways as well.

yep, if they're not installed entropy won't ask you to update them.
If you check the wiki, use the search function and google you can find the answer to most of your questions.

Remember to mark your thread [Solved] if your issue is fixed.

I just uninstalled them from Sulfur. If you include the KDE, Open Office, and Dictionary localizations, then that's probably 60 packages to click to remove one at a time. It was the reason I think I don't like the one-by-one installation or removal choice of Sulfur/Spritz. Whereas Synaptic in Debian/Ubuntu lets you select all the packacges and then click a separate button once to say what to do with it (install or remove). (On the other hand, I think it is designed so that you can both install and remove packages as part of one batch action, unlike Synaptic. I think this design is to stay closer to Gentoo roots and methodology.)

That said, it is, IMO , a very minor criticism, fix only once per installation and you don't have to re-remove them.
