[confirmed] nikosia incorrectly listed in Asia on install

Postby wb89 on Sun Jul 12, 2009 4:26 pm

When installing Mint, I click on Cyprus (Capital= Nikosia) in the 'Select Time Zone' part and it lists it as being in the Asia list of countries which explains why i couldnt find it in the drop down list for Europe. :x

Since Cyprus joined the EU in May 2004 it is no longer part of Asia and is part o Europe.

I noticed this bug in a few distros back in 2004 when Cyprus has just changed, but i have to report it as a bug when its still listed as Asia 5 years later :lol:

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I have always thought Cyprus was part of Europe....
