2.14 Localization Issues

2.14.1 Portuguese Locale Not Installed (Oracle Solaris 10 and Oracle Linux)

On Oracle Solaris 10 and Oracle Linux platforms, the Sun Ray Software installation program does not install the SUNWpkio (Portuguese localization) package.

Workaround: Install the package manually, which is provided in the media pack image:

  • Solaris 10 x86 - Components/10-SRSS/Content/Kiosk_Mode_4.5/Solaris_10+/i386/Packages/SUNWpkio

  • Solaris 10 SPARC - Components/10-SRSS/Content/Kiosk_Mode_4.5/Solaris_10+/sparc/Packages/SUNWpkio

  • Oracle Linux - Components/10-SRSS/Content/Kiosk_Mode_4.5/Linux/Packages/SUNWpkio-4.5-*.rpm

2.14.2 nl_NL Dutch Locale Support Not Provided by Default (Oracle Solaris 11)

Some Sun Ray Software GUI applications, including the Login GUI and the utselect command, require locale support. The nl_NL Dutch local support is not installed by default on Oracle Solaris 11 and must be installed if needed.

Workaround: Install the nl_NL Dutch local on the Sun Ray server using the following command:

# pkg change-facet 'facet.locale.nl=true' 'facet.locale.nl_NL=true'

Reference: CR 14703414

2.14.3 Localized Text is Not Displayed Properly in the utselect GUI (Oracle Solaris 11)

There is no mechanism to load the sys.resources used by some CDE-based applications on Oracle Solaris 11.

Workaround: Before starting the application, load the sys.resources file for the appropriate locale:

% xrdb -merge /usr/dt/config/locale/sys.resources

2.14.4 utselect and utwall (Oracle Linux)

In the Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, and Korean locales, utselect and utwall do not work properly in the Oracle Linux distributions.

Workaround: Remove the utselect and utwall catalog files from the appropriate locale sub-directory. This brings up utselect and utwall in English.

For the Simplified Chinese locale:

# rm /opt/SUNWut/lib/locale/zh_CN/LC_MESSAGES/utselect.mo
# rm /opt/SUNWut/lib/locale/zh_CN/LC_MESSAGES/utwall.mo
# rm /opt/SUNWut/lib/locale/zh_CN.utf8/LC_MESSAGES/utselect.mo
# rm /opt/SUNWut/lib/locale/zh_CN.utf8/LC_MESSAGES/utwall.mo

For the Traditional Chinese locale:

# rm /opt/SUNWut/lib/locale/zh_TW/LC_MESSAGES/utselect.mo
# rm /opt/SUNWut/lib/locale/zh_TW/LC_MESSAGES/utwall.mo

For the Korean locale:

# rm /opt/SUNWut/lib/locale/ko_KR.utf8/LC_MESSAGES/utselect.mo
# rm /opt/SUNWut/lib/locale/ko_KR.utf8/LC_MESSAGES/utwall.mo
