  language-options causes live CD sessions to be untranslated

Status in lightdm package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  Since Ubuntu 19.10, for all Ubuntu live CDs that use LightDM (e.g.
  MATE and Xubuntu), if a user selects a language in syslinux other than
  those with an included langpack, the session is then untranslated.

  For example, if one boots Ubuntu MATE 20.04 and selects Greek in
  syslinux, he ends up with LANGUAGE=en in the session.

  The chain of events is:
  LightDM has an Ubuntu-specific patch that makes it call 
/usr/share/language-tools/language-options instead of the upstream `locale -a`.
  `locale -a` does list el_GR as a supported locale because casper correctly 
updated the locales.
  But language-options doesn't list el_GR, so it fools LightDM into thinking 
that Greek aren't supported; while they're all there, since e.g. MATE doesn't 
rely on langpacks; mate-panel.mo and mate-calc.mo etc are all there.

  I believe the correct fix would be for language-options to list el_GR
  on live CDs (to merge the output of locale -a in its output).
