I did try LANG, LANGUAGE and LC_ALL and it doesn't work whatever I use.

You know, I'm not a purist, I don't care about what is right and what is wrong, but I do care when things don't work right in a common environment.

In other words, if I select French as the language in the login manager (gdm, kdm, whatever), I expect to get the desktop menu in french, and it doesn't work so it needs to be fixed.

Nope, not here. Sorry. FYI, the value set by the DM is "fr_FR at UTF8", not "fr_FR.UTF8"

Nope, adding this to the faq is useless. It needs to work out of the box.
