Description saft 2010-09-11 19:38:10 UTC
Hi I have kde 4.5.1 installed and use kdepim-meta-4.4.6 but this happend also on 4.4.5.
moving from kde 4.4 to 4.5 I didn't update kde-l10n-4.4 so I started kde normal and anything worked good and was in my language (German) also kdepim apps (kmail,kaddressbook,kleopatra and so on...) where in German. But from the moment of updating kde-l10n to 4.5.1 all kdepim apps started in American English as primary language without any option to change it in "switch Application language" menu.

Merging back to kde-l10n-4.4.5 (terrible name for its purpose) fails to build.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.use kde 4.5.1 with kde-l10n-4.5.1 and kdepim apps 4.4.5/6
2.start any kdepim app and it is in English

Actual Results:  
kdepim apps are all in English

Expected Results:  
kdepim apps should be in my preferred language

starting kontact from konsole gave me this:

Comment 1 Jorge Manuel B. S. Vicetto Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev 2010-09-12 00:20:04 UTC
Please send your most sincere thanks to upstream.

We've been arguing for months in the kde-packagers / release mls after upstream's decision to not have a 4.5 kdepim release, warning about the outcome and explaining how it prevented us (at least source distributions) from providing a working translation for KDE-4.5.1 + KDEPIM-4.4.* without any success.

Just to clarify, the core issue is that upstream releases a single kde-l10n-<country/language ISO code>-<version> tarball for *all* of KDE, which in a sane source distribution that doesn't allow multiple installs under different prefixes (-kdeprefix), means you can only have one l10n package. Therefore, when users want to have KDE-4.5.1 and KDEPIM-4.4.5, there's a problem as users can only have kde-l10n-<language>-4.5.1 or kde-l10n-<language>-4.4.5.

PS - Yes, Gentoo KDE could add an hack to allow the mixing of tarballs, but that is an hack that we would need to manually maintain until upstream chooses to change its mind again in the future and thus I think it's neither in our interest nor our obligation.

PPS - I'm sorry for the harsh words, but I got very, *very* upset with upstream about this issue and the complete unwillingness to fix this, as well as the "comfortable" speech that it's up to packagers to "package KDE". I guess one of these days they might just stop providing tarballs and leave it up to us to do that as well.
Comment 2 Guillaume Castagnino 2010-09-13 20:38:41 UTC
i know this is not in line with your words, but...
Why not mutualize work, for example with archlinux ? They are building a tarball for kdepim packages, here :

l10n ebuild for KDEPIM-4.4.5+

I've also had a headache with this problem, so I modified kde-l10n-4.4.5.ebuild to install only kdepim files. It isn't pretty, but it works for me along with kde-l10n-4.5.1, so I'm attaching it here for those interested. It needs patched kde4-base.eclass.

Comment 5 Paolo Pedroni 2010-10-14 15:25:16 UTC
Please, please, please implement this in portage (for kdepim-4.4.6 as well, possibly). It seems a good idea. Don't let your disappointment at KDE devs let us poor users down...

Technically, what's wrong with the approach in Comment #3?

It only works with USE=-handbook, otherwise it fails with the error below:

Another one...
Comment 8 S. Lorsbach 2010-10-23 12:14:53 UTC
this was annoying to me too, so I created a new tar-file based on the kde-4.4.5 translation and the current kde-4.5.2 translation file. I copied the kdepim folder from 4.4.5/message into the 4.5.2/message and added it to CMakeLists.txt. After that tar-bz2-ed the overall folder and copy it into /usr/portage/distfiles

I copied the new tar-bz2-file for german to an ftp. You could also use the attached ebuild file.

I think someone could automate the merge of the revisions, so other languages are available ;)

Comment 12 Andreas K. Hüttel gentoo-dev 2011-04-03 17:55:51 UTC
Upstream is considering kdepim-4.4 dead.
We are considering upstream... ah well, let's not go into this.
Maybe we should now roll our own kdepim-4.4 localization after all.
Comment 13 Andreas K. Hüttel gentoo-dev 2011-04-04 22:20:25 UTC
Please try kde-base/kdepim-l10n-4.4.10 from the kde overlay
Comment 14 Andreas K. Hüttel gentoo-dev 2011-04-05 22:30:30 UTC
kde-base/kdepim-l10n-4.4.10 is now in the main tree and can be installed in parallel to kde-4.5 and kde-4.6. Should fix the problem, and is pulled in automatically by kdepim-meta-4.4.10 if nls useflag is set.
