From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; SunOS sun4u; de-AT; rv:0.9.7) Gecko/20020104 BuildID: 20002010417 In the "mozilla" starter shell script the command type is used to find the location of mozilla-bin. Output of that command is processed with sed and it asumes the that LC_MESSAGES is empty or "C". With other values type will return other mesages. Solution: MOZ_PROGRAM=`type mozilla-bin | sed -e 's/^mozilla-bin is //'` has to be changed to MOZ_PROGRAM=`LC_MESSAGES=C type mozilla-bin | sed -e 's/^mozilla-bin is //'` Regards, Harald Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.set LC_MESSAGES to "de" or some not engl. languages 2. call mozilla Actual Results: you got the following error message: Mozilla has not been installed correctly. Please either reinstall the application or ask your system administrator to run mozilla-bin ist /opt/gnome//lib/mozilla/rebuild-databases.sh Expected Results: starting the mozilla-bin
dupe of bug 121274 ?
No it isn't. This has to be fixed in the shell-script which is used for all Unix systems to start the binary. The other problem is in C/C++.
cls: what do you think?

I think that this should be filed against whomever provided that Mozilla distribution. We use type in our run-mozilla.sh script to check for debuggers and to find md5sum but I don't see where we set MOZ_PROGRAM using type. The stock mozilla script doesn't use type at all.
I use a mozill from Ximian for Solaris8. But I asume that the script is from mozilla directly. So if you use type for finding mozilla-bin be prepared taht it will come with non engl. messages. Otherwise you should set LC_MESSAGES for the command to "C". Regrads, Harald
Since you said the magic word (ximiam), this is going over to frb.

Hmmm It dosen't look like a Ximian special so I reporte it here.
Does this bug still exist in recent mozilla builds (from Ximiam)? Harald, could you try a more recent build and close this bug if it works now?
Oh, I fixed this earlier by leeching blizzard's script and fixing it up for multiple prefixes. There shouldn't be any locale problems anymore. Marking as fixed.
