I have not understood how I can test your patch

Gunnar Hjalmarsson (gunnarhj) wrote :

Well, you'd need to build brasero from source to test it. I did so, and if you don't know how to do that, please be patient and wait until the fix lands in Xenial. (It may take some time.) Then, if you'd find that it still doesn't work as expected, please let us know.

Thanks for reporting the issue!

Okay, I'll wait the fix by update-manager.
Thanks for the fix!

Well, this is inconsistent behavior.

The language file was located in /usr/share/locale-langpack/*/LC_MESSAGES/ and belongend to the packages language-pack-gnome-*-base.

Because of the usbekian and lower german translations file are still in the language packs but the "new" translations comes with brasero-common instead of language-pack-gnome-*-base in yakkety we are having the translation for nds in two packages at two different places.

Translation for lower german in yakkety

/usr/share/locale-langpack/nds/LC_MESSAGES/ in package language-pack-gnome-de-base AND /usr/share/locale/nds/LC_MESSAGES/ in package brasero-common

The uzbekian translation is only at /usr/share/locale-langpack/uz/LC_MESSAGES/ in package language-pack-gnome-uz-base and does not exist in package brasero-common.

Gunnar Hjalmarsson (gunnarhj) wrote :


brasero has been moved from main to universe, and the files will be available in /usr/share/locale going forward.

The -base language packs for uz and nds were not included in the Xenial build on 2016-04-15, probably because the translation coverage was too low. If you think this is wrong, please file a new bug to the langpack-o-matic project.

The files for uz and nds you see in /usr/share/locale-langpack are consequently leftovers from a previous language pack build in the Xenial development cycle. The duplication does not make the translations unavailable when running brasero.

The translations which are provided by brasero-common are the upstream ones, and currently there is no Usbek translation upstream. To change that, you may want to upload the Uzbek translation to <>.

Thanks Gunnar, that patch is not needed since USE_NLS is defined by AM_GLIB_GNU_GETTEXT, what was needed is to have a rebuild so translations are not removed from the binary.

I'm doing a SRU with another fix that should fix that as well.

Note that for yakkety we might want to add "X-Ubuntu-Use-Langpack: yes" to debian/control and use langpack again, that would allow launchpad translators to contribute to the translations (we can't easily do that in xenial, or we would need to coordinate with a new langpacks landing adding back the domain)
