Sub_title: Is the mtPaint version integrated in puppy a full version?
 

Hello,

I have a problem with the localization of mtPaint in Puppy.
The mtpaint.mo files are available and I know they have to be put in /usr/share/locale.
But the version integrated in Puppy doesn't give the possibility to switch between the different languages in the command Image/Preferences....
I have tried to reinstall mtpaint but this procedure doesn't work with the recent versions. I've tried to replace the mtpaint file in /usr/local/bin but this procedure was only successfull until the version 3.02.

Thank you for your help

I really don't think Barry compiled it with the "--disable-nls" option, so it should work.
Since Mtpaint is compiled for /usr/local, you should probably put the .po files in /usr/local/share/locale.
As far as I know, apps usually change the locale automatically to match the locale you're using.

hey gw,

i had the same problem. If you're using puppy 3 you can download the slackware version of mtpaint 3.20 from http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=155874&package_id=173703.

the .mo files should go in /usr/share/locale

should work after that

It seems the binary must be replaced, too.

The attached archive contains the binary 3.20 and locale-files.

For historical reasons, mtPaint's configure script defaults to non-internationalized build, and uses a nonstandard "intl" option to enable internationalization. So mtPaint is rather easy to miscompile - IF one pays no attention to 'configure' output, and doesn't use './configure --help'.
