Description Christian Rose 2001-08-16 19:33:58 EDT
#: ../src/glade-strings.c:280
msgid "Enable , if you want to use it."

Pardon me?
Comment 1 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-08-17 12:14:32 EDT
The file actually has _("Enable "Use synchronous PPP", if you want to use it.");
This doesn't work, obviously... will fix.
Comment 2 Christian Rose 2001-08-17 12:47:07 EDT
No, double quotes will have to be escaped with a backslash, just like in C.
Comment 3 Glen Foster 2001-08-17 15:16:41 EDT
This defect is considered SHOULD-FIX for Fairfax.
Comment 4 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-08-17 16:45:02 EDT
Fixed in CVS.
Comment 5 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-08-17 16:46:05 EDT
BTW, glade problem is filed as bug #51966
Comment 6 Christian Rose 2001-08-20 15:06:44 EDT
The message is now "Enables synchronous PPP for the connection".

All other messages in redhat-config-network use "Enable ...", i.e. speak of user
action, instead of what the setting itself does. So I think this should really
be "Enable synchronous PPP for the connection".
Comment 7 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-08-20 23:18:50 EDT
Done, in CVS.
