Description Tino Meinen 2003-02-24 09:14:27 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030206

Description of problem:
Using Phoebe-3
In the Red Hat Menu, there are a number items (including their tooltip) that
don't show the Dutch translation, whereas the specific message is translated
into Dutch in the corresponding po-file.

This seems to stem from the fact that the corresponding .desktop file which is
located in "/usr/share/applications/" is missing the [nl] entry.

one of the items is "Keyboard" found via the System Settings menu.
This corresponds to the file redhat-config-keyboard.desktop.
The translated messages are found in the po file for redhat-config-keyboard
This is only one of several (red hat) specific items.
The other (red hat specific ones) are:
(note, i've listed the corresponding po file in brackets)

        missing dutch entry (authconfig)

        missing dutch entry (hwbrowser)

        missing dutch entry (redhat-config-keyboard)

        missing dutch entry (redhat-config-kickstart)

        contains old dutch translations (redhat-config-language)

        missing dutch entry (redhat-config-nfs)

        old dutch translations (redhat-config-packages)

        missing dutch entry (redhat-config-proc)

        (Only Name entries are translated, Comment is apparently not       
translatable (the Comment/tooltip is: "Configure which services will be running
when the system starts")

        missing dutch entry (redhat-config-soundcard)

        missing every language entry

        missing dutch entry (usermode)

the switchdesk po file doesn't seem to have a associated .desktop file:
missing .desktop file for switchdesk

Hope this information helps, and hopefully my explanation was clear enough.
(this is my first red hat bugreport)

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. log in using the Dutch language for the session
2. view the menu


Actual Results:  Several items, including the one for Keyboard are not shown in

Expected Results:  Tanslated menu items! :-)

Additional info:

I have no idea if this has to be manually inserted into the .desktop files or if
somhting like putting nl into a configure.in file will fix this. 
It should however not be too difficult methinks

Please inform me if I have to file bugs for every single component
(would mean a lot of work for me though) instead of just using this one.

Comment 1 Miloslav Trmac 2003-02-28 14:15:09 UTC
Please fix this in redhat-config-keyboard for cs (Czech) too.

Comment 2 Brent Fox 2003-03-19 22:22:40 UTC
I know this is a pain, but can you please file separate reports for these issues?  

It really helps since many of these packages do not have the same owner in Bugzilla.

Comment 3 Brent Fox 2003-03-20 17:33:56 UTC
Ok, I have updated the keyboard, language, mouse, soundcard, nfs, hwbrowser,
kickstart, and user tools for Dutch.  Please file separate bug reports for the
other tools since I don't own those packages.

Miloslav, I added the Czech translations to the redhat-config-keyboard.desktop
file as well.

I'm closing this report as Rawhide, but I can't rebuild packages at the moment
but  they will appear in Rawhide sometime soon.

Comment 4 Tino Meinen 2003-03-20 19:29:09 UTC
Ok, Thank you very much Brent!
I was dreading to file so many bugreports, but this will cut the work in half.
I will file bugreports on the remaining modules

I'm curious to why this is such handicraft-like work.
I thought all these things were automated.
(e.g. a .desktop file is automatically generated/updated once the corresponding
po file is added/updated.)
But it appears not to work that way.
This means there will be a lot of work, keeping up with all the additional
languages that are being added recently to the Red Hat tree.

Closing the bug as rawhide means what?

Comment 5 Brent Fox 2003-03-20 19:56:48 UTC
Rawhide means that updated packages will be avialable in the Rawhide directory
on our FTP sites and mirrors.


However, I'm not able to make updated packages at the moment.  I will rebuild
them soon, though.
