Synopsis Edit

Translate custom options in sawfish-ui.

Patch testing Edit

  1. Copy/paste the patch listed below into some file, eg. TEST.diff.
  2. If you don't have sawfish sources yet, have one, as described get it from GIT repo.
  3. Go into the directory where sawfish sources reside, eg. cd sawfish
  4. Test if the patch applies cleanly with this command:
    patch -p1 --ignore-whitespace --dry-run < TEST.diff
    in case of problems try also: -p0 or -p2
  5. If it applies cleanly, then remove the --dry-run from above command and run it again, otherwise ask on the mailing list.
  6. Compile sawfish: ./ && make
  7. Install it for testing, but it depends on your linux distribution.
    1. It is always better to install sawfish as your distribution package, but it is different for each distribution.
    2. So you may try make install, which will install sawifish in /usr/local/share/sawfish/ (if you have write access). But then make sure that you run the correct version and delete it from that directory afterwards, to avoid any conflicts.
  8. Se also

PS: edit this template if you feel that those instructions can be improved.

Wtf vote: pondering. (author's vote) Without this patch all options are not localized in sawfish-ui. However, there could be a better place to get localized documentation. Raorn 15:00, 26 April 2009 (UTC)

Wtf vote: pondering. ... isn't that already done in sawfish.ui.layout? Christopher Bratusek

If you talking about (document-slot), then no. At least not in sawfish-1.3 branch. Raorn 09:11, 28 April 2009 (UTC)

Wtf vote: pondering. I see. Need some more votes. Flashrider [Christopher Bratusek] 08:55, 2 May 2009 (UTC)

In trunk this functionality is added by revision 4381. Raorn 11:06, 2 May 2009 (UTC)
No it's not. I just marked the strings (_"string") but it didn't work ... above is the missing bit of code. I'm currently re-marking all strings on my local copy, replace our custom scripts in po/ by intltools and then the translation team will be happy :) Flashrider [Christopher Bratusek] 13:28, 2 May 2009 (UTC)
