'xlock_gui' translations

February 13, 2012 — BarryK
The PET package 'xlock_gui' is ancient. It puts the screen-lock icon on the desktop.

When you right-click on it, you get a menu, in English, that is defined by an XML file in the package. I have added fr, ja and ru translations for the XML file, the latter two supplied by shinobar and rodin.s.

The PET package has been uploaded:

Note, this package has a help file which currently only has a fr translation. If anyone want to download this package and add some more translations, they are welcome -- then send it to me.

"rodin.s, It is a lot of extra work for me to process individual file translations. Especially when many other language translations come on-stream. Instead, as from the next build of Racy, from latest Woof, a language maintainer will be able to create a single langpack PET automatically in MoManager, and send that to me. I anticipate receiving langpack upgrades periodically but not every time a single file is translated. The next Racy might arrive tomorrow, then try it out, see if it builds a sane langpack.
