Package: hildon-desktop
Version: 1:2.0.19.debian.1-1
Severity: important

As already reported in bug #485682 which reported two bugs, but was closed
because of the other one, i18n is not loaded correectly.

Quoting from there:

l18n strings (translations) are not loaded or displayed
properly. In the main menu (?) I see categories named as:
* tana_fi_my_selection
* tana_fi_internet
* tana_fi_communication

Pointing to any category except Extras (tana_fi_extras) displays
notification message in the right side of the window
"tana_li_of_noapps". (Localization package is installed, as far as I can

Behaviour such as this occurs on a clean installation of the hildon

I have maemo-af-desktop-l10n-engb installed and I tried launching like this:
 LANG=en_GB hildon-desktop
with same results as when launching without LANG setting.

I have attempted to install maemo-af-desktop-l10n-english, however this
package conflicts with maemo-af-desktop-l10n-engb, and hildon-desktop
depends on -engb.
