    Install Language Packs

    My default language for the system (Fedora 26) is en_US-UTF-8.

    Currently, when I want to add an additional language, e.g., zh_CN-UTF-8, I go to

    System -> Language, and change the default language to zh_CN-UTF-8.

    The dialog window will free for a couple of minutes, apparently installing the necessary additional language pack.

    Then I change the default language back to en_US-UTF-8.

    This allows me to create a user with a simplified Chinese locale.

    What's the better way to install additional language packs?

    Thanks.

    I am able to use the following command:

    sudo dnf groupinstall simplified-chinese-support

    to partially add zh_CN support, but it is incomplete. This command does not help wrt the UI's of application programs.

    I still have to resort to my current method to implement "full" Chinese or Japanese locale.

    Is there any way to find out what script was run when I did this? Thanks.
