Bug Description

The message presented when Unity cannot be started (missing 3D) has not been translated into German. I checked the gnome-session translation and find no 'untranslated' string. Maybe this translation string does not yet exist?. The entire system has been installed in German, i.e. gdm runs in German, but the warning is untranslated.

The text is (screenshot attached)

"It seems that you do not have the hardware required to run Unity. Please choose the Ubuntu Classic Desktop at the login screen and you will be using the traditional environment."

This is from Natty dev. branch 2011-04-12 (candidate for beta 2)

The issue was in gnome-session not loading the translation as it's a .session file and not .desktop one
