Description c72578 2015-09-27 07:36:45 EDT
Description of problem:
The .mo files of gedit are installed in the following wrong folder:

Hence, gedit is only available in English, no other languages.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gedit.x86_64 2:3.14.4-1.fc21

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install gedit-3.14.4-1.fc21.x86_64 using yum
2. ls /usr/@DATADIRNAME@/locale/
3. There the .mo files for the available languages of gedit are installed

Actual results:
.mo files are in a wrong folder /usr/@DATADIRNAME@/locale/

locate gedit.mo

Expected results:
.mo files should be in:

locate gedit.mo

Patch to fix autoreconf not running libtoolize after intltoolize
Comment 2 Pieter D.J. Krul 2015-10-06 10:33:02 EDT
I see the same undesired /usr/@DATADIRNAME@/locale/ path in the RPM, even after rebuilding.

$ rpm -q --queryformat="%{name}-%{version}.%{arch} - %{buildhost} - %{buildtime}\n\n" gedit

gedit-3.14.4.x86_64 - buildvm-27.phx2.fedoraproject.org - 1437411979

It can be fixed by adding libtoolize to the %setup section in the gedit.spec file (see proposed patch).
Comment 3 c72578 2015-10-06 13:10:33 EDT
Thanks for your patch.
I have tested it [1] and the .mo files are installed into the correct folder:

locate gedit.mo

And gedit starts with the language of the currently set locale.

However, some manual cleanup is required, to get rid of the previously installed files, e.g.
rm /usr/@DATADIRNAME@/ -rf

Patch to spec-file

Patch to fix autoreconf not running libtoolize after intltoolize, and removing /usr/@DATADIRNAME/ from previous versions.
Comment 5 Pieter D.J. Krul 2015-10-06 15:16:07 EDT

Please try the new patch #1080257 which also automates the cleanup from prior versions. I also bumped the release to 2.


Comment 6 c72578 2015-10-06 16:34:00 EDT
patch #1080257 has just been successfully tried.
The currently distributed gedit-3.14.4-1.fc21.x86_64 was installed first and afterwards updated to the patched rpm from the copr c72578/gedit

The directory /usr/@DATADIRNAME@/ was removed as desired.
