[Solved] Translation of items on the antiX menu

#1 Post by Zeh » Fri Aug 10, 2018 5:01 pm

On my localized antiX, all (start) menu entries are translated except for the 4 at the bottom (Run..., Focus, Themes, Logout...). I've looked in antix-all-menu-entries and in make-wm-menus, both 100% translated, and couldn't find these entries (I've found 'Run' and 'Logout' but suppose these are not menu strings, since the other 2 are absent).
Could someone point me to the correct resource/file, please?

those are built-ins for window manager (fluxbox in your case?).

FYI: mx "test" repo is not the same thing as debian testing repo.

The issue is with IceWM. In fluxbox everything is properly translated. In JWM "Run" is translated while "Themes" is not, and "Logout" is not translated as it was supposed to be..

The problem is that those menu entries are translated via the IceWM package, and there is no pt translation.

I'll try to translate IceWM, then. Thanks.

Actually, we can fix this for antiX since the version of icewm is from our repo. I made a copy of the pt_br.po file and called it pt.po. You can edit that.

I also added it to our transifex translation site

In Transifex I've already translated the strings related to the initial issue and quite a few more. I can't visualize in a running IceWM many of the strings in the pot resource/file. Basically, I can only visualize the main menu and the several context menus that pop up with a mouse right click. Hence, it'll take me quite a while to get the entire pot file translated. But with some digging (or, more probably, a lot of digging) I'll get there, I believe.
Thanks again anticap for all your effort with antiX and for your help with the translations).
