Same for Spanish, written stress (á, é, í, ó, ú) and Ñ are replaced with random characters. In some parts even extra characters are added in random places, for example the picture below says 'kalgunas' instead of 'algunas'.

Barry,

As MoManager seems to include in the langpack only .mo files made through MoManager, the langpacks I make have the 44 files I made with MoManager so far but exclude the 50 .mo files of existing translations, some of them for applications not included in the list of .mo files (HomeBank, ePDFView, AbiWord etc.), that's why the created langpack is less than 200k. I also checked the generated folder langpack_es-xxxxx to find out why my new langpack doesn't install my translations in 'applications' and 'desktop-directories', these folders appear with a '.in' suffix, for example appliactions.in, so when I install my langpack I get an 'applications.in' folder outside the 'applications' directory. I modified the generated folder langpack_es-xxxxx (removed '.in' folder suffix and added existing translations to what has been done so far) and used don570's Right-Click to produce a langpack (over 1MB), then tested without pupsave and it worked, I could see the desktop, the menu and great part of the applications in Spanish. I also tried including the Spanish dictionary for AbiWord, the langpack installs the dictionary but for now I don't know how to set it as default. I attach that langpack to this post so that you can check it and let me know how I'm doing.

Something that doesn't really have to do with translations: I work on intel celeron machines, could it be that some of the things that don't work for me, but work for others, have to do with the kernel version in Racy? I mean, should I use Wary instead? For example, in the latest Racy ( 5.2.2.8 ) I can't launch PGPRS Setup, and I had to remove my flash drive to test my langpack because pfix=ram didn't work for me.

Yes, Racy 5.2.2.9 should fix it! I am uploading it now, it is going slowly, will announce when ready.

5.2.2.9 is "5.3beta3" but is really of most interest to the language translators, as that is where most of the improvements have taken place.

L18L,
Yes, there are still some issues to work out in MoManager, we will see if we can fix those. There are still a few things in QuickSetup too, related to what happens after a user chooses to change locale.

PostPosted: Mon 12 Mar 2012, 10:18    Post subject: Racy & The IRS  

For those who use Racy and are required to file a 1040a form for your income taxes, you may be interested to know...

You can download the .PDF 1040a 'fill-able form' from the IRS site...

http://www.irs.gov/formspubs/index.html

Then go get 'Acrobat_Reader-9.3.3-Lucid.pet' from the puppy repository at:

http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/puppylinux/pet-packages-lucid/

Acrobat_Reader-9.3.3-Lucid.pet installs and 'works' in Racy very well (probably should be in Racy PPM).

Now you can use your computer to fill-in your 1040a and save it, print it out, mail it in. (Also, Should work fine for 'ANY' .PDF fill-in form.)

Acrobat_Reader-9.3.3-Lucid.pet is quiet large '68MB' so have enough savefile space available.

Hope you get a Large Return!

Subject description: smplayer sfs
 

I made an sfs file which contains the newest
smplayer-0.7.1,smtube-1.0, and qt-4.8.0
If you load smtube you can search youtube for any videos that you
would like to play/record and it will call smplayer to play the video.
The F11 function key in smplayer also calls smtube.

The download link for smplayer-0.7.1-i686-racy.sfs is:

Bonjour à tous,

First test of Racy 5.2.2.9

Frugal install on ext3 partition : I copied files initrd.gz, vmlinuz and puppy_racy_5.2.2.9.sfs in directory Racy5229 and modified menu.lst of Grub4dos. No pupsave file.
I run new Racy 5.2.2.9 from grub4dos.

The boot was normal, but when the desktop is displayed, the proposed resolution was 1280x1024 for my old 17" RTC monitor whereas usually all previous versions offered me 1080x768.

In the window Quicksetup start, I changed the resolution to be 1024x768, chosen locale, keyboard and time zone.
I validated (it takes a relatively long time after validation and before displaying the popup listing the changes and to click on it, which may suggest that the machine no longer works),and unfortunately the resolution change has not turned out as expected.

I restarted X, without success.

So I launched the Xorg Wizard to return to the prompt, launched Xorgwizard, test equipment and I finally have the desired resolution. But the display is shifted to the right.

Cordialement Wink

Hi Barry

Could you check the download links for Wary 5.2.2.7 please?

The links in your blog give 404 errors....

and if you go to Ibiblio then the devx in quirky/test is showing as just 100K big....

Thanks
PeeBee

Barry, thanks for adding recent fixes to Woof and web pages.

By the way, when I opened the April issue of Linux Format, I was pleased to see who was "top dog" in their review of distros for older hardware. Smile

After you have changed the locale in QuickSetup, a window pops up asking if you want to translate initrd.gz. If you accepted the offer, it should have run lang2initrd.

However, you won't get that offer if booted from CD, as initrd.gz on CD can't be changed.

If you look in 'pinstall.sh' in the PET langpack, you will see how those .in suffix directories are processed.

The reason for having them in .in folders is so that when someone installs a langpack, they don't get menu entries for applications that are not installed.
