Bug Description

Xubuntu Oneiric.

The translators are having troubles with the translations for the lightdm-gtk-greeter, I was looking into it and everything is set to translatable, but no translation domain is specified in the code and the .desktop file lacks the information. At least thats the first thing that came to mind, as the translations seems to exist.

I am terribly sorry if I am incorrect.

Confirmed with 1.0.0-0ubuntu3, none of the strings show translated in the gtk greeter. Note also that the "Password:" string in the gtkbuilder .ui is no marked as translatable which should probably be fixed as well.

Robert we should probably try to get that fixed in Oneiric for derivatives which use that greeter

I can report a partial improvement: the greeter is now largely translated.

But not the following items:
- "Password:"
- "Guest Account"
- "Other..."

Are those last untranslated strings related to Sebastien Bacher's comment #3 in this thread, about gtkbuilder.ui?
