Subject description: on Lucid Puppy 5.11
 

Hi, just wanted to say I tried the Spanish language pack, langpack_es, both the version for LupQ and for Wary5, in Lucid Puppy 5.11 and didn't work. I don't want to switch to LupQ just because of a language pack, so first, if there's a language pack for LP511 I want to try it. At least a language pack for the menu and for ROX filler, since they're the only things I can still see in English when I try to switch LP511 to Spanish without language pack.

This looks like overkill for my modest needs. I don't want to change my interface to any other language.

All I want is the ability to correctly input Chinese, Russian, German, French, and Spanish text with Seamonkey or Firefox, or some other browser supported by Puppy 5.2.8. For all but Chinese, a simple on-screen keyboard would probably do. For Chinese, I'd prefer to be able to write simplified or traditional characters using a pen tablet or a pen mouse (in which I have considerable past practice), as I suspect keyboard methods would come with a high learning curve.

lang_pack_09.pet (French language)

1) Slacko 99.4 B7 : the pet is good. No problems
2) 3HD puppy (luci 001) the pet is OK but my background disappeared, I get a black background.

Hi shinobar,
again I appreciate this lang_pack.sfs.
In order to remaster a custom french Slacko53 version, I got a full install of it.
Keeping the us locale settings, I installed the lang_pack-0.9.sfs using a sfs installer (thanks to Dejan555 forum member).

After doing Menu/.../Countrywizard and choice to fr_BE, the main menu was still english even after redoing restart jwm.

I tried to manualy do:
Code:
# jwm_font_repair.sh
Warning: Missing charsets in Sring to Fonset conversion
#


Then the shutdown menu went translated. But sub-menus are not.

I got the same warning when making a pet from lang_pack-0.9.sfs and installing it in a frugall puppy install.

It seems that in both cases not using lang_pack-0.9.sfs in a sfs install process causes a script not to recognize the lang_pack as a sfs. And then brings the warning message.

So my question: how to modify that script to allow whether the lang_pack install from a pet, or from a sfs-installer use?

Thanks for any advice

Cherrs, Charlie

Can be some issues with full install...
As for the menu, extract /usr/share/desktop-directories from the lang_pack-0.9.sfs and manually copy all the stuff in the directory to the corresponding directory, /usr/share/desktop-directories.

Well, i am not sure but i suppose, you can also remaster from flugal install.

Thank you! It works!

I noticed that some Spanish translations were incomplete, missing or had spelling mistakes. I'm checking some existing translations and making new ones, I'll post them here so that you can use them in a newer version of the language pack or when you release a new QuickSet Puppy. How about Racy-Q and Slacko-Q?

After two years of running Lucid Puppy 525 I've finally gotten round to building my first Precise Puppy (561). It looks very smart. I'm almost disconcerted.

But after the basic set-up and tweaking for personal preferences I came to the issue which caused me more problems than any other when I was a newbie struggling with lupu 520/525.

Could I get a Japanese IME up and running on Precise Puppy 561? Fortunately the answer was yes. It's easy once you know how. A couple of sessions with a well known search engine provided me with the name of the file needed and a location where it could be downloaded.

The Japanese language pack for Precise Puppy is lang_pack_ja-1.5b.sfs and it's available here.

But it's not available in the official ibiblio repository. I wonder why? This latest language pack is a good. I works 'out of the box'. Install the sfs, tweak the SCIM settings for your personal preferences (it will work on defaults), reboot Puppy and start typing.

New versions of the Japanese language pack are announced at the japanese forum but (unless I'm even worse at searching this form than I already think I am) they don't seem to be announced here. By making this post I bumping this thread for the first time in two years.


It seems to me that the support Puppy Linux offers to people who need to type in non-latin languages is fragmented. Each language seems to be approached on an ad hoc basis. The issues of 'non-latin input' and 'localisation' appear to have been jumbled together.

I am an English speaker. I don't need anything localised. But I do, on occasions, want to type nihongo script into my PC.

When I look at the official repository I don't see a pet for SCIM. Nor do see pets for the major non-latin scripts (anthy, hangul, pinyin, tamil, hindi etc.).

SCIM isn't particulary large. I would happy to see SCIM included as a standard component of Puppy. Then it would be up to the user to simply add in whatever scripts they need. That way adding support for non-latin input would be divorced from the issue of localisation.


Shinobar-san, if you happen to read this post, I have a question: While looking at your repository I noticed that four days after you first posted the current ja-1.5b language pack you added a pet called lang_pack_ja-precise-fix-20120516.pet. The question is 'what is being fixed and who needs to install this'?

I work primarily in English too, but I also dabble in Russian and Chinese. For reading web materials in Cyrillic or Chinese Characters, using Seamonkey, Puppy lupuplus (5.28 ) works fairly well, but when I need to input characters, especially Chinese, the wheels come off...

Aside from that, there's a much more serious problem with file management in lupu when foreign characters occur in a filename. It's proven impossible to save a file to disk if it contains a Chinese Character. In fact, the same is true if it contains accents or umlauts frequently found in Spanish, French, and German words. In order to save, copy, or move the file, I have to rename it. This can become a major problem when trying to update software, such as that of a Chinese e-dictionary. Then the target device must allow you to reinstate the original filename.

I'm not sure of the meaning of localization, and so don't know if that would help. But I gather you have to be more adept at the localized language than I am in Chinese or Russian, to effectively work with a localized version of Puppy. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

I'm sorry this thread has been so neglected in the past two years, and wonder why.

I've been altogether absent from the forum for a lengthy period, and that I can understand - if one doesn't post here at least once every three or four days, the new message notification mechanism stops sending notices, and it's easy to lose track.

Precise-550JP, Japanese edition is released
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=86737

We have a plan to update the lang_pack_ja based on this new release.
Please wait for a while.

@amj
The lang_pack_ja-precise-fix-20120516.pet is for the test releases of the Precise Puppy. It is not useful for the Precise Puppy official releases.
