#3654 closed defect (fixed)

Activity strings in global scope go untranslated

Reported by: dsd Owned by: erikos
Priority: Urgent Milestone:
Component: Sugar Version: 0.96.x
Severity: Major Keywords: 12.1.0, olpc-test-passed

As detailed in activity code is being imported before gettext is configured. This results in some activities displaying untranslated strings, such as Physics, which loads strings in global scope.

Looks good. When moving forward please add a comment in the sugar-activity addition explaining why gettext needs to be run so early, and similarly please explain in the shell patch why we load the value into the environment.

Ok, adjusted the patch now as Daniel suggested and added a comment. I have tested on the XO and both Clock and Physics are translated fine now.

We went back to removing the langpackdir feature. Adjusted the shell/toolkit/toolkit-gtk3 accordingly. Moved the initialisation of gettext into 'sugar-activity' so it happens early enough. Can be tested with Physics.

Is in: sugar-0.96.2, sugar-toolkit-0.96.3, sugar-toolkit-gtk3-0.96.3

Actually, sugar-toolkit-gtk3-0.96.4 should be used.

Translation of strings in Clock and Physics works again in 12.1.0 os13.
