Problem with translation
« on: October 21, 2013, 07:32:17 AM »
Hi people, i'm having a weird behaviour with the latest ubermix.
Trying to translate the system, i selected spanish language from gnome-language-selector. System messages and some icons apps are translated, but categories names doesn't (Education, Games, Accesories...).
My locale returns
LANG=es_AR.UTF-8

The weird thing is, if i open alacarte, the menu categories are displayed in spanish.
Any ideas ?
Thanks
Juan

Hmm. I removed a number of extra translation files to free up some space and make room for newer updates. Perhaps I inadvertently removed the ones you need. Try running

sudo apt-get --reinstall install `dpkg -S /usr/share/locale/es | sed -e 's/:.*$//;s/,//g'`

and see if it's better. Make sure you have enough free space for this to work. If you run this in generic mode and have not increased the base partition size, you will run out of space.

Thanks Jim, i will test it today.
I browsed all the gnome freedesktop wiki, and all the files were on place, this thing is making me crazy....my old localization script worked perfect until 1.81

Jim: It's still on english.
I resized the base partition, applied the patch, and then changed the language.
All is translated, with the exception of the icons and groups names.
Thanks,
Juan

OK, download this file: http://goo.gl/PZwImx then open a terminal and

sudo tar -xvf Downloads/locales.tar.gz -C /

Next, change languages and you should be all set.
