Gnome-panel special locale for app - how?

Postby catzilla » 2010-02-13 06:25

Debian-testing, updated.

I need an app to have an other-than-system locale when I run it from gnome-panel. From terminal, this is accomplished by typing 'LANG=XXX <app> <options>'. From gnome-panel, this results in an error "Could not launch application".
How can I fix this?


Thank you.

Have you changed the command in the System - Preferences - Main Menu - <program group> - <your program name> - Properties menu item? You get to the Properties by right-clicking on <your program name>, where you then can change the command with which to open the program.

Let me clarify.
In the properties for the item, the command line is "LANG=ru_RU.utf8 wine /home/catzilla/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/TotalCmd/TOTALCMD.EXE", which results in
Code: Select all
Failed to execute child process
"LANG=ru_RU.utf8" (No such file or directory)

Thanks for nothing.

For others stumbling on this:

env LANG=ru_RU.utf8 <carry on with your command>
