EasyOS 0.9.18 French build

January 12, 2019 — BarryK

I announced a Portuguese build this morning:

Now there is a French build, download from here:

Anyone fluent in French is invited to test this.

And, if you feel like it, get involved with improving the translations. This involves using MoManager, and creating a updated fr "langpack" PET.

You might like to read earlier blog posts:

For Puppy Linux, the main fr translator was forum member 'esmourguit', but I don't think that he has visited the forum for some time -- I just checked, his last post was July 2017. Someone can decided to be the main guy for fr, through which others liaise.

The outcome should be an updated fr langpack PET. It will be too time-consuming for me to micro-manage each language build of EasyOS, so I want an updated langpack, that's it, just the one file, makes it easy for me, rather than people sending me lots of individual translations.

Having said that, for the next couple of releases after 0.9.18, translations for individual scripts and documents will be accepted.

Note, this langpack will be different from the one in Puppy Linux, although there are many common apps and scripts. However, for this first fr build, I used an old Puppy Linux langpack PET, created by esmourguit, dated 2014-12-19:

Furthermore, I won't keep releasing a language-specific build of EasyOS if there is no interest. Someone may only want to commit to being a translator for a short time, that's OK.
