Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubiquity

Maybe just a case of missing translations, but I'm following the localization test cases from here:
The screen for setting up the partitioning options is not localized. All of the options are in English (screenshot attached).

This is natty-desktop-amd64.iso from 2009-03-29.1

Also the welcome screens (that display while installing) are not localized, including:
* Welcome to Ubuntu
* Finding software
* (something about organizing your photos)
* etc.

I forgot to mention, I ran the installer in German.

summary: - Partitioning setup not localized correctly
+ Installer not localized completely

It'll just be incomplete translations, I guess. In future please file multiple localisation issues as separate bugs, as they generally require fixes in different places. In this case it happened that the two issues you mentioned are in different packages, so I just created a new bug task.

Yep, the slideshow is not localized at this point because just about every string was replaced a little while ago. I double checked and that is now available to translators :)

Thanks for reporting!

ubiquity (2.5.33) natty; urgency=low

  [ Colin Watson ]
  * Shut down the debconf-communicator instance started in This
    should reduce the number of spurious crash reports we get.
  * KDE frontend:
    - Force the SIGCHLD handler installed by QProcessManager to use
      SA_RESTART, in the hope of avoiding problems with Python's lack of
      EINTR-safety (LP: #745014).
    - Show ext2 and btrfs in the same colour as ext3 and ext4, rather than
      in the same colour as free space.
  * localechooser/supported-locales only lists additional locales, so
    calculate the set of language packs to install using the union of it and
    debian-installer/locale (LP: #741304).
  * Do a quick check at startup to see if the debconf database is locked by
    something else, and exit slightly more gracefully than by raising an
    exception (LP: #746020).
  * GTK frontend:
    - Fix the partman plugin to convert the return value of
      gtk.TreeModel.get_value to Unicode before looking it up in a dict
      (LP: #746408).
  * Update translations from Launchpad (LP: #745924, #746500).
  * Automatic update of included source packages: flash-kernel 2.28ubuntu18.

  [ Evan Dandrea ]
  * Clarify substitution variables in the debconf templates using comments.

Evan's upload this morning fixed the issue. I now have both ubiquity and the slideshow translated.
That's by using today's daily build + updating ubiquity-slideshow-ubuntu to the latest version.
