[fixed 3.7.7] mintUpdate 3.7.6 - PT Translation

Postby emorrp1 on Mon Jun 15, 2009 9:03 am

EDIT: Originally - freezes with Portuguese (PT) languages
Confirmed in viewtopic.php?f=34&t=27155&p=160632#p160632 to affect PT and PT-BR

Symptoms:
"doesn't function after installation" (freezes in gray/force quit)
"When there are NO updates to do mintUpdate works."
"mintupdate works fine running system from the live cd"
"whenever there's an update to be done, mintupdate freezes"

Workaround:
Synaptic --> Refresh --> Mark all --> Apply

confirmed independently from live cd VM, running in a root shell:
Code: Select all
LANGUAGE=pt mintupdate

outputs a couple of gtk errors, then:
mintUpdate error wrote:Exception occured in the refresh thread: unsupported format character 'a' (0x61) at index 10


Problem: translation error - % should be %d in one of the strings
Solution:
Code: Select all
apt install gettext
cd /usr/lib/linuxmint/mintUpdate/locale/
sudo sed -i '/Existem/s/\%/\%d/' pt_PT/LC_MESSAGES/messages.po
sudo sed -i '/Existem/s/\%/\%d/' pt_BR/LC_MESSAGES/messages.po
cd pt_PT/LC_MESSAGES && sudo msgfmt messages.po
cd ../../pt_BR/LC_MESSAGES && sudo msgfmt messages.po


I'll posted the complete updated translation in the mintUpdate translation thread.
