Let me try this way then, and then we wait for someone else to try,
- From bug #281779 I quote: "Every language needs an entry.desktop file
in /usr/share/locale-langpack/<lang>"

This line is the key. Without the entry.desktop file, there is no
language support. 

Your bug report #280724 is that you can't add the language. The answer
is you can't add a language that does not have an "entry.desktop" file.

The duplicate tag is because the fix for both bugs is to add the correct
"entry.desktop" file for the language.
