Item14266: Error enabling internationalization and languages

Priority: Urgent
Current State: Closed
Released In: 2.1.3
Target Release: patch
Applies To: Engine
Component: Configure, I18N

When foswiki starts with a disabled {UseInterfaceInternationalisation}, a stub instance of Foswiki::I18n is created that does not inherit from Locale::Maketext. As a consequence it also does not implement get_handle.

An error occurs now when you start configure, enable {UseInterfaceInternationalisation} ... and then click on any of the unselected languages, let's say Bulgarian.

An error will be displayed saying:

Can't locate object method "get_handle" via package "Foswiki::I18N"

due to Foswiki::I18N not being based no =Locale::Maketext during startup. I am not sure whether this error manifests in old school CGI, It does so on a persistent perl environment for obvious reasons.

Not sure how to fix this.

Confirmed. On fcgi system, you cannot enable languages after initially enabling Internationalization.
