Description Sebastian Vahl 2009-04-16 21:23:54 UTC
Version:           0.4.0 (using KDE 4.2.2)
OS:                Linux
Installed from:    Fedora RPMs

Fedora creates a fixed tarball of kpackagekit which adds the translations (see bug #189832 for reference). But when using kpackagekit with a different language (here: LANG=de_DE.UTF-8) only the left side of the window is translated. It seems that the .mo files are not used, only the .desktop files (in Fedora eg:/usr/share/kde4/services/kpk_settings.desktop).

Screenshot of the main window of kpackagekit. The left side is correctly translated into german, the right side is still english.

Are you sure you loged out and in before testing? also make sure the files are in the right place, i have older versions working fine, 0.4.1 is going to be release soon i'll try to add the translations in the tarball.

Yes, I've done several logouts for testing. I've also changed the system language to fr_FR@UTF-8 for testing and tried it with a different user. And my last test was with an extra created livecd with german language (== clean installation).
(Maybe have a look at the downstream bug: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=493061)

The translated files are located here:

It is fixed in the svn version.
