Non-English language files for Firefox and LibreOffice

Postby imrazor » 2018-05-02 22:14

For some reason, Debian Stretch seems to install dozens of different languages for Firefox and LibreOffice. This takes up disk space, and is particularly annoying and time consuming when updating. Is there any way to remove or exclude these languages?

The firefox languages packages are named firefox-esr-l10n-XXX and the libreoffice languages packages libreoffice-l10n-XXX. You can remove them but be carefull with dependencies. You can check why a package was installed with:
Code: Select all
aptitude why PACKAGE
Have a nice day!

Code: Select all
# aptitude why libreoffice-help-dz
i   live-task-localisation-desktop Recommends task-dzongkha-desktop
i A task-dzongkha-desktop          Recommends libreoffice-help-dz


Not really sure what to make of that. Do I need to remove "live-task-localization-desktop", or would that be dangerous?
