How to change EKD from French to English language

Postby asilnevs » Sat Jan 14, 2012 8:35 pm

I think this is a question that Cenwen can answer.
I ask this question in the Openshot forum because I already are registered on this forum and not on the French EKD forum and
my French is very, very bad so....
About my question. I saw on some pictures that EKD is already available in English.
I have been looking around on the EKD website and forum but I don't find anything about it (how to change).
I also have been looking in my usr/share/ekd/.... directory and saw that there are a lot of directories and files concerning the English language but I can't figure it out to get EKD in English.
I switched my computer language from Dutch (Belgium) to English and Openshot changes to English but EKD stays in French.
Can you help me on this?

Don't worry for that.

About my question. I saw on some pictures that EKD is already available in English.


Exactly. Normally, it is automatic but if EnKodeur-Mixeur doesn't detect your locales he is passing by default at French or English (sorry I don't remember which one :? ) .

Can you help me on this?


Obviously, if I can. Like I know well their leader Team, I'm going to contact him at this subject and you are a lucky man because he is subscribed on this forum too.

First, tell me which version have you ? the last one 3.0.1 ?

Secondly, try to remove it completely and re-install it by this command :

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get purge ekd
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install ekd

Yes, I have version 3.0.1 of EKD.
I also removed and reinstalled the program like you asked.
If it's possible, I want to leave my local to nl_BE like it is now and only change EKD to English.

Hello asilnevs ;),

I'm the historical developper of EKD. Cenwen (Olivier) told me of your message here.

Excuse me in advance my english is not good, I hope you understand me anyway.

Recently I set up a new forum for EKD (EnKoDeur-Mixeur) and there is a forum in english (ideal for you).

About my question. I saw on some pictures that EKD is already available in English.


Yes.

I have been looking around on the EKD website and forum but I don't find anything about it (how to change).
I also have been looking in my usr/share/ekd/.... directory and saw that there are a lot of directories and files concerning the English language but I can't figure it out to get EKD in English.
I switched my computer language from Dutch (Belgium) to English and Openshot changes to English but EKD stays in French.
Can you help me on this?


@ asilnevs: In fact the principle is that when users (other than english and spanish ... because EKD is already translated into these languages ​​-> but we really lack of translators at the moment which means that parts of the messages remained in french) start EKD the interface is automatically in english. You have nothing to configure on your machine in this regard.

In this latest version of EKD a bug was introduced on the interface in languages ​​other than french ... this has resulted so far in this version 3.0.1 that only the french version appears (both in the GNU/Linux and windows version).

I temporarily fixed the bug (I hope it will not reappear, if so you should report it on the new EKD forum).

The corrected version of EKD can be found on the SVN repository of EKD (I have not yet done a deb or rpm package, and updated the apt repository from that ... and arranges for the Windows version) ... you must set up the SVN repository of EKD, here's how:

http://ekd.tuxfamily.org/index.php/Deve ... SVNEnglish

Information: for german users, EKD is being translated into german (it will be available soon).


@ Olivier (en français): voilà la raison du problème (c'est indiqué dans mon commentaire dans la révision 375 sur le SVN):

http://codingteam.net/project/ekd/browse//trunk/ekd_gui.py/?rev=375

--> de la ligne 1713 à la ligne 1815.

Hi EKD, installing all the things of the SVN page changed the language to English :P
So thank you very much both of you.
Does it mean that every time I run "sh ekd_svn.sh", EKD will be up-to-date to the latest development version?
The English part on your forum , was it already there yesterday?
Perhaps I overlooked it ;)

Great, it works well with you then ...

In some time there will be a version 3.0.2 of EKD (with this change), and other things as well (if I can do what I have in mind).

So thank you very much both of you.

Yes !

Yes, it's here. Look at the picture below (the english forum is circled in red):

Si si tout est redevenu fonctionnel à ce niveau (dans la version SVN pour l'instant) suite à mes modifications d'hier :).

Impecable. :D
Vas-tu refaire le deb ? Ce serait, à mon avis, bien. ;) Tu aurais ainsi une version internationnale impeccable, sans parler de t'éviter d'avoir de nombreux retours de ce genre sur ton forum Internationnal. :roll:

Je ne vais pas le refaire pour l'instant car j'ai une ou deux fonctionnalités à implémenter (et il faut que je trouve le temps pour) ... je vais t'en dire plus par mail perso (enfin je vais essayer d'y penser et trouver le temps pour te répondre). Si je réussis tout ça (c'est pas gagné), EKD sera peut-être à ce moment là en version 3.1.0 et là il faudra que je refasse le deb, le rpm, le dépôt apt et les deux versions portables pour windows [version 7zip et version .exe]) ... d'autant plus qu'il faut que j'attende un peu que la traduction allemande soit un peu plus avancée.
