Translating Ubuntu is a rewarding effort to provide users with the operating system in their language, but at the same time it carries a great deal of responsibility. We want to make sure users get the most of their native language support, and while lowering the barrier for contributions, we also need to make sure that translators are aware about this ...

There is a keyboard layout plugin for xfce - xfce4-xkb-plugin. Install it, if it's not installed, then add it to the panel. Right click its icon and add the layouts you want. To configure only keyboard shortcut use: setxkbmap -option grp:switch,grp:alt_shift_toggle us,ru

You should just create a patch that changes the string in the code, and the rest should be taken care of for you. When the package is built, the translation template (the gnome-session.pot file) will be regenerated and will pick up your changed string. The template will then be uploaded into Launchpad and the new strings will be exposed for translation ...

Ran into the same issue with xubuntu 13.04. The old way many online docos referred to (via Settings > Keyboard > Layout Options) no longer worked because there was no such button any more. Here is the new conventional (as in, no shell commands or X11 conf editing required) method that worked for me, in detail: Make sure the xfce4-xkb-plugin package has ...

Abolutely, go to System → Administration → Language Support at Language, select English as your default language: And in the Text tab, choose Dutch as your preffered Locale for numbers, dates and currency. I've been using this setting for a long time, and it's a bit weird sometimes, you may see something like "This file was modified on Maandag...", ...

Emi Bcn from Launchpad said: Look at /usr/share/hunspell/ and delete all files you don't need/want. It's all!! It worked for me except just in case I went to myspell and aspell folders too and erased the ones I didn't need.

I think this tool might work for you although I've never used it. keyboardlayouteditor If it doesn't work then with a little patience you can create a custom keyboard layout by yourself. I know it's not a quick way to do it but by doing it this way you will learn something. If you decide to do it by yourself then the only thing you need to do is edit a ...

As the best previous answer appears to be commented afterwards by the user as not working anymore, I will give here an updated perfected version of a quite successful workaround. Sorry not to be able to provide a more scientific less empirical approach, I am not an advanced user, just had the luck to get what I want in this case and want to share this, maybe ...

Yes. You can type Tamil phonetically in Ubuntu 12.04. Install the following packages: sudo apt-get install m17n-db m17n-contrib ibus-m17n You might have to log out and back in to see the various layouts. To enable phonetic typing for Tamil, search for Keyboard input methods in the dash and open it. Go to Input method tab and click on Select an ...

LANGUAGE determines the order of preference for user interface message localization with gettext. http://www.gnu.org/software/gettext/manual/gettext.html#The-LANGUAGE-variable

LANGUAGE serves a similar purpose to LANG and LC_MESSAGES in that it controls what language the user interface is displayed in. The main difference between them is that while LANG and LC_MESSAGES can only take a single locale specifier, LANGUAGE can take a list of colon separated list of locale specifiers. As an example, this would allow a user to have ...

The meta-information for the applications shown in Software-Center is provided by the app-install-data package. The title and short description can be translated through app-install-data's Rosetta page on Launchpad. I'm not sure if it is possible to submit a translation for the packages's long description.

"Language Support" is located in the System Settings (which you can find in the Launcher), and can also be found directly in the Dash by typing language. Click the Install / Remove Languages… button to download and install a language that is not currently on the list, and then ...

The problem is known, take look at bug 28226 and its duplicates. Feel free to vote for the bug using the "This bug affects me too" feature. To summarize, English in Ubuntu means all variants (en-au, en-za, etc.), not just one. You could delete the individual spelling packages, myspell-en-* and hunspell-en-*, but that would also remove language-support-en, ...

Looks like Tamil support made it into 12.04 or even earlier. Though not everything is completely translated. I would recommend you get in contact with the localization team if you can help them out translating. Translating dialogues isn't very difficult, I have done some translations myself a few years ago for my language. Last activity for Tabuntu on ...

This is a known bug. I use xfce in arch linux and what I do is edit the ~/.config/xfce4/panel/xkb-plugin-##.rc and add a new line or something and it works for some sessions. Another temporary fix may be what #31 suggests 1. Set the desired options in the plugin 2. Copy the ~/.config/xfce4/panel/xkb-plugin-##.rc to some other file e.g. ...

Generally speaking there is no way to use gettext translation in QT because the library uses an internal translation mechanism (Qtranslate and .ts files) as stated here QTBUG-2404. However, there is a viable alternative. Shipping with QT there is a toolkit called lconvert that can be used to convert .ts files to .po and vice versa. So you can extract all ...

Take the default Polish layout (the one with the name Polish, with no further specification). This is the programmers layout. EDIT: Alternatively, you can always do setxkbmap -layout pl -variant basic or just setxkbmap -layout pl, but that will not be kept across sessions. Both XFCE and the default Unity shell use the same layouts, just with different ...
