Installation bug - Norwegian menues
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:28:07 EDT
The installation program will not install Norwegian menus.
I specify that I have Norwegian Keyboard, am in Norway (timezone menu),
that I want absolutely everything installed (included Norwegian
spellchecking and so on), and do even walk through the entire
specification list - specifying each thing separately - to make sure I
install eweryhing, but the menues remain in English and i get a message
saying that Norwegian menues not are installed, when I try to specify
Norwegian menues manually...
Maybe I am expexting to much by expecting that when the installation
menues are in Norwegian will it install norwegian menues in Linux as
I got Linux ver.6.2. from a CD on a Norwegian Linuxmagazine (in Norway),
so I wonder why it not accept Norwegian language...
What can I do to get Norwegian menues?
Trond can you figure this out?
"Huh"? It worked for me. What complains about that?
What does not accept Norwegian language? Exactly what do you do?
And exactly what error messages do you get from which programs?
I have now installed Linux from scratch once more, now in the text - based
installer, and got a mix of norwegian (N) and english (E) menues. The menues
whitch got problems are vitrually everyone; main menu and all the configuration
menues, now they do run a mix of E and N. Examples:
- Login menues: 1st menu (username) got welcome in E, asks for name in N but
password in E.
- Gnome Configuration Tools: even worse, all menues got components in N and E
together. Eksample: CD properties menu are mainly in E, but the buttons and
submenues in N.
The fault I first reported was in Linuxconf, it got a language selection and
since everything here was in E, i selected N (and got an error message stating
the N language module was missing...)
I don't expect heaven, but is it possible to at least get all-N main menue,
configuration tools, help-menues and login and logoff menues consequently in N?
I'm still wondering _exactly_ what menues you are talking about in the
As for what happens later, some things are translated, others are not - to help,
have a look at http://developer.gnome.org/projects/gtp/ ,
http://i18n.kde.org/ and http://www.iro.umontreal.ca/contrib/po/HTML/
Note that the i18n state for 7.0 is far better than for 6.2
