Menu item not translatable

Bug #201328 reported by Timo Jyrinki on 2008-03-12
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
network-manager-applet (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Installed nm-editor.desktop has X-Ubuntu-Gettext-Domain, but the menu item is not translatable, resulting in non-translated menu item(s) in default Ubuntu installation. Possibly source code packages needs to add "_":s into the .desktop files' Name and Comment fields and add the .desktop files (both nm-applet and nm-editor) to POTFILES.

It seems to be using it on /etc/xdg/autostart/nm-applet.desktop at least for me, where did you find the missing X-Ubuntu-Gettext-Domain ? thanks in advance.

the nm-editor desktop also has a correct domain

Hi. Similar to the Brasero bug report, I only looked at the source code package, not the installed .desktop file and jumped into conclusion. For some reason this menu item is not translatable, maybe because the .desktop file in the source files is missing from POTFILES and that the .desktop files lack "_" in front of the Name and Comment rows. I'm not an expert in these issues, but the end result is anyway untranslatable menu item showing in default Ubuntu installation.

Changing description accordingly.

This was now fixed with the removal of the items from menus. The remaining problem is bug 204155 resulting in the editor program itself being completely untranslated in all languages.
