Translation for '0setup'

November 16, 2012 — BarryK
The '0setup' script is in Woof, but is copied into Puppy when it is built, at /usr/local/petget.
The script downloads a compatible-distros package DB files and converts them to Puppy standard format.

'0setup' gets called from the PPM when a user wants to update the package database. Thus, the user-interface will need international translations.
I have not used the gettext method, instead it is the "SSS" method, which is documented with MoManager documentation.

The strings from 0setup that need to be translated are now in /usr/share/sss/script_strings/script_strings, which can be done via the MoManager or the file can be edited directly.

Note, 'script_strings' is already in existing pups such as Slacko, Wary and Precise. The latest Woof commit adds extra strings to it.

The extra string is just: [code] [_usr_local_petget_0setup] [/code] Right?

"L18L, I don't understand the question. The modified sss file is /usr/share/sss/script_strings/script_strings, downloadable from the Woof repo. You also need to download 0setup, to /usr/local/petget.

"A user has reported success in installing ubuntu to the new Acer chromebook "just had my C7 delivered today, downloaded and ran the ChrUbuntu script from these instructions install went through fine, rebooted into 12.04 but there was an kernal message shown [ 12.157543] sdhci-pci 0000:02:00.1 Invalid iomem size. You may experience problems. but the desktop loaded, so it was OK.. System details is showing 1.8Gb memory being used which is, i guess, about right :) also says "Graphics Unknown" so i assume ubuntu is not aware of the onboard graphics controller in this Chromebook, but the display looks fine at first glance, i have to test some more"
