A couple of things related to this package:

  • The app was created with Linux Mint in mind, so there are some things that might be handled differently on Arch; you can check the "Locale" or "Internationalization" articles on the wiki for more information. Please also keep that in mind before posting bugs here
  • From version 1.5.0, on some desktops and menus, it still appears the "Input Method" access despite the removal on this package, it is useless on Arch and if you wish you can remove it manually using menulibre, alacarte or some other similar program (it is useless because, again, things are handled differently in Arch than Linux Mint, which is where the program is mainly aimed for)

Any problems, bugs or issues usage, you can report it to upstream via its Github page

Can't install it. Getting:

patching file usr/lib/linuxmint/mintlocale/im.py
Hunk #1 FAILED at 1.
Hunk #2 FAILED at 14.
Hunk #3 FAILED at 37.

EDIT: Seems the yay cache was the problem. I uninstalled it, cleared yay cache and reinstalled. Success.

@toxin: this "issue" is gonna be like that on Arch, because the add and remove buttons only works for Linux Mint, on my pinned comments I explained that the only option is to select upon the available locales previously enabled

Add/remove buttons missing. :(

@Sam-Burgos Added missing package - works now.

@SunRed: interesting, was not expecting that to happen actually, I am running Antergos which actually has that package (it's named iso-flag-png), I am trying to look for the PKGBUILD so I can post it here as dependency but I haven't had any luck so far in finding it, if you can catch it either from Antergos or Manjaro I would appreciate it so I can publish it as well

By testing the package now it asks for "/usr/share/iso-flag-png/_generic.png" that Arch does not have. Afaik Linux Mint uses a separate flags package containing all these files. Manjaro does have it packages and in its repos.
How did you manage to run it without an error?

@Sam-Burgos Yes, I was a bit busy and forgot to answer but I read your email and added you for now. Cheers.

Perhaps I can help you if you can add me as co-maintainer, I send you some comparison tests on the newer and the current version to your email, and probably the patch won't be needed anymore

When I set my language it needs to restart to apply change. However the second restart moves everything back to English...
