#8946 closed enhancement (fixed)

Localization by selecting the language

If we want to "localize" the system, than we need to make it in 3-4 steps (an example for Hungarian locale):

  1. select the preferred language to Hungarian
  2. select the formating
  3. set the keyboard layout to Hungarian
  4. set the timezone to Hungary

It would be useful if after select the language, than the other "connecting" options will set too. So; it would be only one step. There may be only one problem: how to parse all these settings to a language.

I believe the ReadOnlyBootPrompt, which shows up when you boot an installation CD, does most of that. The idea is to use it as the primary way of setting up a language, while the Locale preflet is meant for advanced use.

There are quite a lot of special cases to handle, however, such as French having two main layouts for Mac and PC (and some alternatives ones), countries spanning multiple timezones (USA, Russia, ...), and so on, which makes it harder than it looks to setup everything on a single click.
