I have a few .desktop files that are not translated in the menu, I can’t find upstream of this, how do I proceed? thank you.
Keep in mind I am not a translation expert, I am not a development expert either but here is what I have to offer:
Unfortunately we have to run each one of them down by the project and packages they belong with. If you ever wonder what package a file belongs to there is the
apt-file command (it will likely need to be installed). It isn’t foolproof but it narrows it down pretty good. To find a package on Launchpad I think the fastest way for me is to use a DuckDuckGo bang search. For example
!upkg software-properties Here is what I came up with on my searching.
|file name||binary package||source package||launchpad link|
|software-properties-drivers-lxqt.desktop||software-properties-qt||software-properties||software-properties package : Ubuntu|
|software-properties-lxqt.desktop||software-properties-qt||software-properties||software-properties package : Ubuntu|
|system-config-printer.desktop||system-config-printer||system-config-printer||system-config-printer package : Ubuntu|
|xscreensaver-properties.desktop||xscreensaver||xscreensaver||xscreensaver package : Ubuntu|
For the above it looks like only xscreensaver and lubuntu-update-notifier don’t have translations available in Launchpad. I don’t have any idea how translation works for xscreensaver. For lubuntu-update-notifier Hans started to setup the translation bits but I have no idea how to work with it. Perhaps @tsimonq2 does.
I’m going to look at all that you tell me and see what I can do, with lubuntu-upgrade-notifier the translation has already been sent to gitea.
