Update Center notifier: how to launch it in the desired language.
By pierrot on Sep 30, 2009
Some interesting comment from Update Center bug 1802. It indicates how Update Center's notifier works in term of language.
The notifier can be started in several ways: 1) At login (inherits login locale) 2) By updatetool (it is started in the background a few minutes after updatetool is launched) (inherits updatetool's locale) 3) Manually via updatetool --notifier (inherits the shell's locale) You can use updatetool -n --shutdown to stop all running instances of the notifier.
