Description Christian Roessner 2005-10-02 07:37:11 UTC
What about the idea of modifying the mozilla-firefox-bin ebuild so that it
downloads the browser in a locale you have set with LINGUAS?

My idea:
DESCRIPTION="Firefox Web Browser"

# If linguas is not set, we default to US english
[ -z $LINUGAS ] && LINGUAS="en_US"


Is something like this possible?


N.B.: LINGUAS is set in /etc/make.conf. I know that OOo and KDE is using it, so
why not firefox and/or thunderbird, too?

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:

"The variable takes in space-separated list of language codes"
What would it do in the case of LINGUAS="sv"?
What would it do in the case of LINGUAS="sv en"?

Okay, seems my patch is not okay. So maybe we could list every src like done in
OpenOffice-bin. This should not be a bigger problem

If you do not want to do this, I may send a patch in the near future. But this
may take some days

I think you misunderstood me. I am not maintaining any relevant packages, I am 
just a  user. The idea is probably good (I don't use mozillas of any kind so I 
don't really know) but I think it might need a second iteration on thinking on 
the implementation so it is done right. I wish you the best of luck. I am sure 
users of firefox will be very happy to get an internationalized version.

Created attachment 69757 [details]

This patch could be a a sample for what I have meant. Missing: Fallback to a
default linguas, if none was defined (can this happen?).

Also: What happens to users, defining a linguas, which is not supported?

Thanks for answers
