Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 101706
"Starting X" is still not translated
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:56:39 EDT
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.
This message has been translated upstream since 2002-11-27:
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...
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.
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

This works as expected in fc1
