kpackagekit translations not working
Last modified: 2015-07-13 13:36:24 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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. change system-wide language to something different than english
2. start kpackagekit
not all strings are translated
all translated strings should be shown in the translated language
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?
It seems with this bug:

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

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:

This is unrelated
Could you please retest with the following build:
Sorry, I don't see any difference with this build.
I'm afraid I've run out of ideas :/ Any other user seeing this?
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.
I've filed this bug upstream: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=189833
Fixed, hopefully for good now :)
