[Bug 657488] Re: gnome-language-selector doesn't list en installed lang so i cannot select installed english language


Hi TenLeftFingers,

This is a rather old bug report, and your issue seems not to be related
to the original bug description. (As regards the old bug, a lot of
changes to the language handling has happened, and I'd consider it

As regards Irish, I see no problems on my 14.04. Once installed,
"Gaeilge" can be selected as the display language. The Irish keyboard
layout is available in Text Entry whether you have installed the Irish
language or not.

Can you please elaborate on the issue you are having.
