Created attachment 298870 [details] sceenshot showing error messages i could only show them through screenshot because keyboard is not working properly in virt manager so i could connect to my bugzilla account and paste this text.
Comment 2 Jon Stanley 2008-03-23 23:07:27 EDT
Looks like some sort of internationalization thing maybe, since I can't reproduce it here in US English. What language is this? BTW, I transcribed the python exception below: KeyError: u'\u033c\u03bd\u03bf\u03bc\u03b1' Also, what version of gnome-desktop is this? I'm running gnome-desktop-2.22.0-2.fc9.x86_64 here
Comment 3 Nikos Charonitakis 2008-03-24 05:09:13 EDT
Language is Greek -version of gnome-desktop is the latest from rawhide (march 23). Maybe you are right. I will check gnome-desktop greek translation for any errors.
Comment 4 Nikos Charonitakis 2008-03-24 05:17:14 EDT
Update: greek translation seems is ok. http://l10n.gnome.org/POT/gnome-desktop.HEAD/gnome-desktop.HEAD.el.po msgfmt -cv -o /dev/null gnome-desktop.HEAD.el.po 69 translated messages.
Comment 5 Simos Xenitellis 2008-03-24 06:11:57 EDT
Apparently it is this message, #: ../gnome-about/gnome-about.in:865 msgid "%(name)s: %(value)s" msgstr "%(όνομα): %(τιμές)" The correct translation should be #: ../gnome-about/gnome-about.in:865 msgid "%(name)s: %(value)s" msgstr "%(name)s: %(value)s" This might actually give grief to other languages as well. Am fixing now.
Comment 6 Simos Xenitellis 2008-03-24 06:13:20 EDT
Ok, fixed upstream. There is also a second occurrence, #: ../gnome-about/gnome-about.in:920 msgid "<b>%(name)s:</b> %(value)s" msgstr "<b>%(name)s:</b> %(value)s"
Comment 7 Matthias Clasen 2008-03-26 13:01:41 EDT
Fixed in 2.22.0-3.fc9. Fixed for mk, too.
Comment 8 Nikos Charonitakis 2008-04-08 20:07:31 EDT
Created attachment 301733 [details] crashes again another similar error appeared with latest rawhide gnome-desktop package (see screenshot )
Comment 9 Matthias Clasen 2008-04-09 09:15:25 EDT
Thats unrelated, looks like a cairo dependency issue. Please make sure you have the latest pixman installed.
Comment 10 Nikos Charonitakis 2008-04-09 15:25:46 EDT
ok updated to latest pixman. Works fine.
Comment 11 Matthias Clasen 2008-04-09 16:37:50 EDT
Behdad, we should probably bump the pixmap dependency in cairo to avoid this.
Comment 12 Keith Pattington 2008-04-24 09:56:18 EDT
Just tried fedora-9-pr-i686 live cd and aformentioned about dialog caused hard lockup of ui at least, not able to verify any further. Config: english, vesa for nv on acer core 2 notebook.
Comment 13 Matthias Clasen 2008-04-29 09:45:45 EDT
The cairo -> pixman dependency is correct now, so I am going to close this bug. If there are further problems with about gnome, please file them against gnome-desktop.
