Bug Description

Binary package hint: system-config-printer

A lot of strings that are translated and have been displayed in German in Maverick before but do not seem to have changed are shown in English in Natty. This includes desktop notifications which are important and should appear in German. See attached screenshot for an example.

Another string is »%n document queued«. ( This string has been translated in 2008!

All of these strings have been translated in Launchpad long before the release of Natty. Therefore it's not a translation bug but seems to be a package problem or some other bug.

Tim, it happens very often that parts of system-config-printer appear untranslated in Natty. Can you check through the whole source code of s-c-p whether the translations get correctly initialized for all ways how code of s-c-p is called (printer setup tool, applet, job viewer, Plug'n'Print, ...)?

This bug was fixed in the package system-config-printer - 1.3.3+20110707-0ubuntu1

system-config-printer (1.3.3+20110707-0ubuntu1) oneiric; urgency=low

  * New upstream release
     o GIT 1.3.x snapshot from 2 June 2011
     o Changed Make/Model and State labels into a GtkEntry so contents are
       always fully selectable.
     o udev: don't rely on retriggering printers, enumerate them instead.
       (As Ubuntu uses Upstart and not systemd we need to update
       /etc/init/cups.conf to make use of the new functionality).
     o Convert iters to paths before comparing (Red Hat bug #717062,
       LP: #791690, Upstream bug #221). Tree iters cannot be compared, but
       paths can.
     o Set translation domain in D-Bus service (LP: #783967).
     o Driver preferencess: Avoid PostScript for HP LaserJet 2100 Series
       (Red Hat bug #710231). Avoid non-manufacturer PostScript drivers in
       this case. Some other drivertype names changed to avoid conflicts and
       mistaken matches.
     o Ensure consistency in jobviewer if add_job fails (Red Hat bugs #693055
       and #632551).
     o Raised the priority of the SpliX driver for Samsung laser printers, so
       that it is used as the default driver for these printers, and not
       "Foomatic/gdi" any more (LP: #793741).
     o Adjusted test code in so it doesn't look like a tempfile
  * debian/patches/20_priority-for-splix.patch: Removed, applied upstream.
  * debian/patches/10_do-not-show-firewall-dialog.patch: Removed, problem of the
    firewall dialog appearing is solved upstream.
