Bug Description

Binary package hint: update-manager

1. use german (or spanish) locales in jaunty
2. run "update-manager"
3. click on upgrade
4. verify that most of the main upgrader window is localized, but that the main string ""Upgrading Ubuntu to version 9.10" is not

5. repeat step 1
6. run "update-manager --proposed"
7. verify that the main ugprade dialog is now fully localized

When I upgrade my system from Jaunty to Karmic RC, update-manager shows the "Upgrading Ubuntu to version 9.10" string untranslated in my Spanish desktop. Translations in Launchpad does not include that string for translation in the update-manager template for Jaunty. Instead, it has the "Upgrading Ubuntu to version 9.04" string:


However, update-manager in Karmic does include the "Upgrading Ubuntu to version 9.10" string:

I can confirm this here. The release ugprader is using the translations from karmic and ships its own embedded copy of them. The last language updates was from around ~2 weeks ago. This should get a refresh and the new strings should be included then.

It turns out the issue is a missing locale.bindtextdomain() that is caused by moving to gtkbuilder. See https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=574520

I uploaded this into karmic-proposed. It has a i18n update as well because I initially thought it was just too late update of the translations.

Michael, what does it do?

Michael Vogt (mvo) wrote :

@pitti: thanks for the review. This change is intended. Its not strictly needed, but it was incorrect before, it was just not noticed because it would fallback to the langpack locales when it does not find them there. I can back it out again if that is prefered (but its more correct this way).

Michael Vogt (mvo) wrote :

The localedir in the code is later used in bindtextdomain(), the doc says:

       Message catalogs will be expected at the pathnames dirname/locale/cat‐
       egory/domainname.mo, where locale is a locale name and category is a
       locale facet such as LC_MESSAGES.

There is no /usr/share/locale/update-manager, but there is /usr/share/locale/de/LC_MESSAGES/update-manager.mo
(well, there is not because its stripped out and replaced with langpacks, this is why its not strictly needed but more correct).

Accepted update-manager into karmic-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!

Michael, can't copy to lucid because lucid's version is newer than karmic's. Please fix in lucid ASAP.

Is this still an issue? Please respond if the bug is still present
