Have you looked at the Language Selector in the System->Administration
menu? You should be able to install the languages from there (simply
select them and select apply). Then, logout back to GDM and change the
language preferences. The package structure for languages has changed
significantly between Hoary and Breezy, that is probably the source of
your problems.
