After trying the new install of PureOS (2018-07-06), I decided I would install the system in french
- The first issue is that after running the installer in french and installing from there, I was expecting my system to reboot in french by default. This was not the case and instead it rebooted in English with a setup window asking me again to choose the language of the newly installed system. In this list, English was the default choice.
The right behavior would be, in this case, to reboot in French and avoid asking to chose the language again.
- The second issue is that the home folders name where all set in English by default. After (re)defining my system's language, and only after logging out and logging in again, I got asked to make my home folders names to match my system's language.
The right behavior would be to have the home folders names to match the language chosen in the installer.
- The third issue is that PureBrowser and LibreOffice where still missing the French locales and spelling dictionaries, which I had to install manually. For that matter, I had to go to the command line and install the package libreoffice-l10n-fr, while PureBrowser didn't even let me install the language pack add-on. This is not acceptable for an average user.
The right behavior would be that locales and spelling dictionaries are automatically installed based on the language chosen in the installer.
