Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubiquity

"For best results please ensure:
-has at least 2.6GB
-is plugged in to a power source
-is connected to the internet"

It should be: >>For best results please ensure that Your computer:<<

I get the same text when installing Natty alpha 1.
I also agree the text should be altered as it is currently not clear what the checklist refers to.

FWIW, in Maverick, the first line is "For best results, please ensure that this computer:" which seems clearer to me. Not sure why it was changed.

Two days ago I made a Polish translation for that string in Natty and it was also OK. Perhaps in Alpha 2 or beta things will be as they shoud.

I made a fix for this on the prepare sentence.

I added a new patch for both (LP: 691671) (LP: 69420) to fix both sentences.

The text in the UI file and in is only there for developers. The text actually shown in the installer is pulled from debconf, and this bug is a matter of that not happening for the aforementioned strings.

It wouldn't hurt to sync up the UI file text of course, but it wouldn't be a proper fix for this bug (internationalisation).

ubiquity (2.5.12) natty; urgency=low

  [ Mario Limonciello ]
  * Fix oem-config-remove-gtk for changes in AptClient's commit_packages.
    (LP: #708722)

  [ Evan Dandrea ]
  * Update translations from Launchpad.
  * If a session indicator gconf key starts unset, make sure it ends
    that way (LP: #684052).
  * Fix mistake in the cleanup branch merge that broke translations
    (LP: #691671).
  * pc105.tree is included in console-setup now, which speeds up
    ubiquity builds.

  [ Colin Watson ]

    partman-efi 23ubuntu1, partman-partitioning 79ubuntu1.
