Description Richard Allen 2005-05-11 22:18:24 UTC
Description of problem:
Character encoding not right in KDE menus

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run KDE using the Icelandic language
2. Click the K menu
3. Select "Kerfisstillingar"
Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info:
I'm the translator for the Red Hat/Fedora and also a member of the Icelandic KDE
translation team.
In Fedora Core 3 and also FC4test3 there is a string that looks very wrong in
the KDE menu's.

The Add and Remove Software item in the menus seems to have some UTF8 vs.
ISO8859-1 encoding issues.

I cant find this string anywhere in the KDE .po files but I did find it in

msgid "Add and Remove Software"
msgstr "Bæta við eða fjarlægja hugbúnað"

It looks ok here but you never know with UTF8.

I need help to find this string so I can fix it.

I did more checking and the English string in that screenshot "Logical Volume
Managenent" is translated in system-config-lvm but does not appear there.
Why is that ?

"Security Level and Firewall" was nowhere to be found however.

I apologize for bugs 157475, 157476, 157477, 157479 and 157480.
I was attempting to open this bug but kept getting an internal server error.  I
didnt realise the bugs got created.
I sure hope I didnt fill your mailbox up with unneccesary bugzilla mail :)

These issues still in FC4

Comment 5 Richard Allen 2006-12-11 00:57:03 UTC
FC4 is old news now :)
