Description Sebastian Vahl 2009-03-31 10:10:16 EDT
Description of problem:
Most strings of kpackagekit are not translated and still english. Only the translations that are defined in the desktop files (/usr/share/kde4/services/kpk_*.desktop) are shown in the defined language. So it seems that the *.mo files aren't used.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. change system-wide language to something different than english
2. start kpackagekit
Actual results:
not all strings are translated

Expected results:
all translated strings should be shown in the translated language

Additional info:
I've tested this with de_DE.UTF-8 (were the translation should be almost complete) and fr_FR.UTF-8.

Is it only some strings, or the whole app (parts of it) untranslated? Can you post some screenshots please?

Only the strings which are provided by the desktop files are translated. All other strings (which are located inside the mo's) are untranslated.

> Only the strings which are provided by the desktop files are translated. 

The three strings on the left side of the window (here in german: "Softwareverwaltung", "Software-Aktualisierung", "Einstellungen") are translated. These three strings (and the above "Hinzufügen und Entfernen von Software") are translated inside these files:

Could you please retest with the following build:
Comment 7 Sebastian Vahl 2009-03-31 15:27:32 EDT
Sorry, I don't see any difference with this build.
Comment 8 Lukáš Tinkl 2009-04-01 06:04:18 EDT
I'm afraid I've run out of ideas :/ Any other user seeing this?
Comment 9 Sebastian Vahl 2009-04-14 11:23:12 EDT
Any progress? I've also seen this while testing a localized version of the kde livecd (so with a clean user account/installation).

I think, I'll put it on the meeting agenda.
