KDE --- Internationalization ... anyone interessted?

hi,

i wanted to experiment with some kde-i18n-packages from http://i18n.kde.org/index.php and i want your oppinion:
do we need some other languages in archlinux for kde?

i wanted to try originally the german-package, but it is 47MB so i think for the first experiment i start with a smaller one ... is a special language needed?

on ftp://ftp.kde.org/pub/kde/snapshots/kde-i18n/ you can find all available languages (the 2 letters indicate them)

Re: KDE --- Internationalization ... anyone interessted?

KDE has support for a lot of different languages now.  If anybody wants to add special languages to their KDE system, here's a PKGBUILD to get you started:

pkgname=kde-i18n-de
pkgver=3.1.0
pkgrel=1
pkgdesc="German language support for KDE"
url="http://i18n.kde.org/index.php"
depends=('kdebase')
source=(ftp://ftp.kde.org/pub/kde/snapshots/kde-i18n/$pkgname-$pkgver.tar.bz2)

build() {
  cd $startdir/src/$pkgname-$pkgver
  ./configure
  make || return 1
  make prefix=$startdir/pkg/opt/kde install
}

Modify to suit your language.

Re: KDE --- Internationalization ... anyone interessted?

thanx for the PKGBUILD ... i see it's the same for all KDE packages (i built kgpg a week ago -> in incoming)

now my question: should i --- after it works for me --- send such packages to incoming? is anybody (from the maintainers) interested to start a category "internationalization" in official or unofficial?

  make prefix=$startdir/pkg/opt/kde install
}

Modify to suit your language.

-> you must set

kde_htmldir=/opt/kde/share/doc/HTML

because the kde_htmldir is in makefile dependend on prefix, but it needs some files from the working KDE-installation ... so the correct build() should look like this:

build() { 
   cd $startdir/src/$pkgname-$pkgver
   ./configure
   make || return 1
   make prefix=$startdir/pkg/opt/kde kde_htmldir=/opt/kde/share/doc/HTML install
 }

then you can build your own package without problems

Re: KDE --- Internationalization ... anyone interessted?

one additional comment:

for the current kde 3.1.3 in archlinux, use

ftp://ftp.kde.org/pub/kde/stable/3.1.3/src/kde-i18n/

instead of

ftp://ftp.kde.org/pub/kde/snapshots/kde-i18n/

because it works better (the other is more difficult to build because of some other things you must specify and it is older (=less translations; not optimized to progs ...))

Re: KDE --- Internationalization ... anyone interessted?

--- --- the short way --- ---

[1] --- download the tarball i posted in incoming

ftp://ftp.archlinux.org/incoming/kde-i18n-de.tgz

to your machine,

[2] --- extract the tarball: inside you will find 3 files

kde-i18n-de-3.1.3-1.pkg.tar.gz is the pacman-package für die deutsche oberfläche in KDE ...

[3] --- do as root simply:

pacman -A kde-i18n-de-3.1.3-1.pkg.tar.gz 

... when you start KDE next time, you can

[4] --- set in the Control Center | Regional Settings | Language the language German

that's it

--- --- the long way --- ---

if you want to build the package at your own, here the PKGBUILD i used (it is also in this tarball):

# Contributor : your name <your.email.address@isp.land>
pkgname=kde-i18n-de
 pkgver=3.1.3
 pkgrel=1 
 pkgdesc="German language support for KDE"
 url="http://i18n.kde.org/index.php"
 depends=('kdebase')
 source=(ftp://ftp.kde.org/pub/kde/stable/3.1.3/src/kde-i18n/$pkgname-$pkgver.tar.bz2)

 build() {
   cd $startdir/src/$pkgname-$pkgver
   ./configure 
   make || return 1
   make prefix=$startdir/pkg/opt/kde kde_htmldir=/opt/kde/share/doc/HTML install
 } 

noch fragen?


--------------------------------------------------
to the archers:

what about a new group called "internationalization" beside "official", "unofficial", "unstable" where we can put all packages for other languages than english: this may help a lot of users that are not used in working on an "en" computer (and dont want to build the package on their own == inventing the wheel a n-time) ... it will make archlinux more popular for the users
