Description Noa Resare 2003-08-05 21:17:52 UTC
Description of problem: the word "Starting" in for example "Starting Evolution" in the tasklist on the panel is still not translated in Swedish locale. I reported this in the previous beta cycle and hp marked it as fixed, but I never saw the fix and rhl9 shipped with it untranslated. Bugzilla seems to have been cleened from RESOLVED/FIXED entries. I have tried to find where the string is set (have looked at gnome-panel, startup-notification and metacity) but haven't found it. With a pointer in the right direction I can find out why the string isn't translated myself. The mix of languages when for example "WebblÃ¤saren Mozilla" is localized but not "Starting" is frustratingly unprofessional, especially when most of the other translation is extermely good.

The string is in the "gnome-desktop" package. Be sure it's translated upstream, get a new tarball of gnome-desktop 2.2.x released, then let me know and I'll download and build it.
Comment 2 Christian Rose 2003-08-06 12:17:57 UTC
This message has been translated upstream since 2002-11-27: http://cvs.gnome.org/bonsai/cvsblame.cgi?file=gnome-desktop%2Fpo/sv.po&rev=gnome-2-2&root=/cvs/gnome
Comment 3 Havoc Pennington 2003-08-06 14:25:52 UTC
So I have gnome-desktop 2.2.2 in rawhide; if there's no translation with that, presumably the tarball was made before that date? Or else there's some other problem with gnome-desktop...
Comment 4 Noa Resare 2003-08-06 15:46:11 UTC
The translation was there all the time. It seems like a textdomain() call is missing somewhere, because if I replace _("Starting %s") with dcgettext(GETTEXT_PACKAGE, "Starting %s", LC_MESSAGES) the translation works as intended.
Comment 5 Havoc Pennington 2003-08-06 18:34:40 UTC
I don't see the problem offhand. Should be sure this issue is opened on bugzilla.gnome.org as well.

I have file this on bugzilla.gnome.org as <a href="http://bugzilla.gnome.org/createattachment.cgi?id=119280">#119280</a>

Ooops, wrong link. Try this instead: http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=119280

This works as expected in fc1
