I installed cauldron in virtualbox in English locale.
I try to switch to Greek (el) but even after reboot the enviroment is always in English

What i did:
I installed the locales-el package and after choosing the Greek localisation in MCC i have the follow folders:


these folders dont contain any translation file.

in my Mageia 1 system the translations are situated in 

The drakconf.mo file i can find it in :
and no in any of the el_GR* folders

I remember in an older installation that in order to have mcc and terminal messages in Greek i had to choose the localization during the first installation, if not it remained in English. But it was a long time ago and i dont have in my mind more details..

It is an issue that worth to open a bug report ?
