Bug Description

Hey,

the strings are often , in over 30 languages curently, too long for the menu, so users can't see them at that low boot resolution.

The strings should be shorter, if not: users CAN'T read the boot options from the liveusb or livecd.

I reported that at the Ubuntu Translator Mailinglist, but it was too late for Ubuntu 12.04.

You can see the new, not yet used, translations here:

I'm updating translations from Launchpad as available. Please do not reopen this bug just because some particular language still has overly-long strings, though, as I *cannot fix these*; all I can do is update the translations to whatever's current in Launchpad. If you want further improvements, please contact translators directly to update their strings; only once that's been done does it make any sense to reopen this bug (and even then there are probably better workflows than playing close/reopen games).

Hello Eduard, or anyone else affected,

Accepted gfxboot-theme-ubuntu into precise-proposed. The package will build now and be available in a few hours. Please test and give feedback here. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you in advance!

Gotwig, could you build an ISO image with ubuntu -proposed enabled and see if this upload fixes the issue? I suppose the repo has to be enabled on host.
If you can't use scripts from lp:ubuntu-cdimage, try building an elementary OS image with Congrego, it uses gfxboot-theme-ubuntu too. I hope it will be a sufficient test for verifying the fix.

Do you know if its now included in ubuntu-updates instead of proposed?

@Eduard: no, nothing has verified that update, it will not get out of staging until that's done

the details of the languages having an issue is on https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-translators/2012-April/005367.html it seems

we should probably just confirm that there is no visible regression there, it's only translations updates...

Works with proposed.

Works with precise-proposed , thanks.

Okay, so Eduard tested the fix and it doesn't cause any visible regressions. Shall I mark it verification-done?
