Xlock gettexted

January 07, 2015 — BarryK
A few days ago, when I was testing April64, the amd64 build of Quirky April, I clicked on the "lock" icon top-right of screen ... and nothing happened.

Well, I fixed it, but I was surprised to discover that the script /usr/local/apps/Xlock/AppRun is internationalized in a "non standard" way (surprised because that was done back in 2008, and it escaped my attention all that time). That is, not gettext'ed, which is the method we have settled on for our pups.

So I converted the script to use gettext, and have created a new PET, assigned it version 0.3.

Get it from here:
