These applications can easily be localized, as they include languagefiles.

All files together would be very big (gnumeric:20 MB).
So they are not included in Puppy.

I wrote small language-installers, that help to install only your personal language.

Abiword 2.4.1:

Gnumeric 1.4.3:
http://www.murga.org/~puppy/viewtopic.php?t=7163

Applications not in Puppy itself:

Abiword 2.4.4:
http://www.murga.org/~puppy/viewtopic.php?t=7826

Gnumeric 1.6.3:
http://www.murga.org/~puppy/viewtopic.php?t=7627

xmms:

Filemanager XFE:

Windowmanager Enlightenment (partially supported):

PostPosted: Fri 09 Jun 2006, 18:07    Post subject: Problem with localization  

Hello,

I've tried to localizate in french Abiword an Gnumeric with the above language tool in Puppy 1.09 and Puppy 2.0, but without success.
The dotpup package installs without problem...but the commands of Abiword and Gnumeric remain in English.

I've also tried to translate the menus of dia, gnumeric and sylpheed using the following actions :
- modification of /etc/profile with the following commands :
export LANG=fr
export LC_ALL=fr_FR
- Copy of dia.mo, gnumeric.mo, sylpheed.mo in the directory
/usr/share/locale/fr/LC_MESSAGES
- After a reboot of the system these applications are always in English

Could someone explain me step by step the procedure to obtain my applications in french. I suppose it could be possible whith .mo files found in other Linux distributions?

Thank you for your help

I think you must install french locale-settings using
Control Panel - Chooselocale.

Will try it now...

no, does not work.
Quote:

sh-3.00# gnumeric

(gnumeric:2368): Gtk-WARNING **: Locale not supported by C library.
Using the fallback 'C' locale.


de_DE works fine.
I don't know, I must google for this...

Like this gnumeric works:

sh-3.00# export LC_ALL=fr_CA
sh-3.00# gnumeric


There are mor fr_ listed in /usr/lib/locale:
sh-3.00# ls -d -1 fr*
fr
fr_BE
fr_BE.utf8
fr_BE@euro
fr_CA
fr_CA.utf8
fr_CH
fr_CH.utf8
fr_FR
fr_FR.utf8
fr_FR@euro
fr_LU
fr_LU.utf8
fr_LU@euro

Hm, now also this works:
sh-3.00# export LC_ALL=fr_CA
sh-3.00# gnumeric


Maybe, because I chose "fr" with "chooselocale" and rebooted.

Alors:
choisissez dans le Puppy-menu

Control Panel - Chooselocale

choisissez "fr".
Editez /etc/profile

cherchez pour "LANG="
Remplacez avec:
Code:
export LANG=fr_FR
export LC_ALL=fr_FR


Restart l'ordinateur.
Installez francais pour Abiword et Gnumeric avec les programmes de la premiere message.

C'est ca Smile

Mark (pardon por tous les faux mots, je suis allemand, et ca fait plus que 10 ans depuis que je parlait francais la derniere fois)

Hello Mark,

Thank you for your response, it's running fine now.

(Ich komme aus Belgium aber wohnt in der Schweiz. Meine Muttersprache ist franz÷sich aber ich spreche auch ein wenig deutsch und english)
I'm interesting to translate Puppy in french and I'm working on a helpfile in french. The Puppy menu in french will be available soon.
