    Default Yast fonts on Tumbleweed

    Can someone tell me why when I log in as root and start Yast it looks fine
    but when I log in as a user then start Yast and enter the root password Yast
    has some text in a squiggly ( Arabic perhaps ) font.

    This is Tumbleweed 20180306
    with Plasma

    You mean the text for things like software management, hardware, etc. is
    actually not readable at all? I've never noticed that, but I would look
    at your locale settings as your non-root user. Also, how specifically
    (show commands with the code (#) tag button in the web UI) are you
    becoming root? I have never noticed Yast magically prompt for a root
    password, so I assume you are using sudo. If so, try 'sudo -i' first, or
    SSH in as root, or use 'su -', and see if those have the same issue.
    Otherwise, locale stuff should show from the following command (executed
    both as non-root and as 'root' to see differences.

    Code:
    env | grep LC
    --
    Good luck.

    Well, when you start YaST from the menu of a desktop session (GUI, e.g. KDE or Gnome), it does open a window to ask for the root password to begin with. That has been so for ages. I do not know if you would ask this magic, bit it is simply programmed as such.

    I've been seeing the same since update last Monday. Some icons show Arabic titles other show Arabic comments. Not identified a cause yet.

    This only occurs in yast-gui.

    I see that too. Strange as the Arabic entries are either the category heading or the category explanation - but not both. I did check my language settings in yast and these just show GB English.

    Well, the corresponding translations (package "desktop-translations") are broken it seems.

    en_GB/update-desktopfiles-yast.po contains e.g.:
    Code:
    #: /usr/share/applications/YaST2/users.desktop
    
    msgctxt "GenericName(users.desktop)"
    
    msgid "Add, Edit, Delete Users or User Groups"
    
    msgstr "إضافة مستخدمين أو مجموعات مسخدمين أو تحرير بياناتهم أو حذفها"
    Somebody should file a bug report.

    Please clarify,
    - cannot find any file with the extension .po
    - cannot find any file with contents which defines: msgctxt, msgid, msgstr

    Tumbleweed x86_64 is being referred too?

    cheers

    That's in the source package/tarball.

    xxx.po is the translation "source code", it is "compiled" into a .mo file when the package is built and the binary package (desktop-translations.rpm) contains those binary .mo files.

    The .po files (in plaintext) are only contained in the desktop-translations.src.rpm (or you can get them on OBS).

    Tumbleweed x86_64 is being referred too?
    Sure, that was taken from the current Tumbleweed package (noarch though, not x86_64... ).
