Please make ksconfig use intltool
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:02 EDT
Please consider ksconfig use intltool. This will significantly ease the
translation of the .desktop file entries for translators, since they can be
translated and maintained directly from the po file.
We need to do this soon, but I don't have a current timetable for it.
Don't know who closed this one, but I'd really like to know the reason.
Why was this marked WONTFIX? No reason was given...
Oh sorry. Using intltool will require using autoconf, which to me is overkill
for a simple python program.
Nope, it doesnt require use of the auto* tools.
It really isnt that hard.
Create a po/ dir.
Add a po/POTFILES.in file, including the path to the somename.desktop.in file
Then to create the somename.desktop file all you do is:
$ intltool-merge po/ -d -u -c po/.intltool-merge-cache somename.desktop.in
you can also type intltool-merge --help for a bit more info.
