Description Kjartan Maraas 2003-10-31 13:19:49 UTC
Description of problem:

It seems that all KDE apps show up in gnome-panel menus in english. The KDE
.desktop files use nb_NO as their locale and that could be part of the problem.
Not sure if adding nb_NO.UTF-8 to SUPPORTED in /etc/i18n/sysconfig will help
since the nb_NO locale is missing from glibc still. They also have no tooltips,
but that's just because there's no Comment=... line in the .desktop files.

Could this be related to http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=83276 ?

Yuck, moving to gnome-desktop.

Kjartan: could you summarise the outcome of bug #83276 to help me
figure out what to do about this one ...

Comment 2 Mark McLoughlin 2004-04-22 14:19:41 UTC
Kjartan, could you give us an update ?

Comment 3 Kjartan Maraas 2004-04-22 18:39:55 UTC
The KDE apps in the menu are still in english because the default
locale for Norwegian is no_NO and they are using the new nb_NO locale.
So, all KDE apps use $prefix/share/locale/nb/LC_MESSAGES to look up
their translations and the rest uses $prefix/share/locale/no/LC_MESSAGES

Maybe nb_NO could be added as a fallback domain for translation lookup
while we migrate the existing no_NO translations over to nb_NO?

Comment 4 Kjartan Maraas 2005-02-02 14:02:28 UTC
This seems to be working after the move to use nb_NO as the default
locale. Closing.
