Package/SlackBuild for gtranslator or other tool to help localize shell scripts?
Does anyone knows of a (trusted) source to provide that?
I am comparing softwares to help localize shell scripts.
"lokalize" is part of the kdesdk package included in Slackware 14 and "poedit" is available @slackbuilds.org. I would like to try "granslator" too but am too lazy and not enough skilled to deal with Gnome dependencies, hence my question. Else I would install another distribution in a VM to try it.
In addition, I would be pleased to hear about another software with similar features usable on Slackware 14, if any. I am aware of the po mode in Emacs but would prefer tools usable by translators not wanting to (learn how-to) use emacs.
GNOME packages use autotools, so it's not too hard to catch dependencies. When in doubt, I always check configure.in or configure.ac.
This is an aproximate list of dependencies for gtranslator 2.91.5
Included in Slack 14.0:
libtool >= 2.2.6
intltool >= 0.40.0
gtk >= 3.4.2 (gtk3)
glib >= 2.32.0 (glib2)
libxml >= 2.4.12 (libxml2)
packages available from SBo
libpeas >= 1.2.0
Packages available from SBo that need an upgrade:
gtksourceview - available 2.11.2, needed >= 3.0.0
Packages not available from SBo
gdl >= 2.91.1
gda >= 4.2.3
Following dependencies are available from GSB project (btw, I would try newer versions with a small modification of provided SlackBuilds):
The following are optional dependencies:
gdict >= 0.11.0
gtkspell >= 2.99.99
json-glib >= 0.12.0
Good luck and have fun. :)
Thanks for your answer, bobzilla. I installed Debian 6.0.6 in a virtual machine with gtranslator and will try to figure out if it's better than lokalize in some aspects, in which case I will try to make a SlackBuild for it (or maybe a bundle with its dependencies as do AlienBob for VLC).
Other than that I had a look at your wiki, it's interesting. Maybe you could consider contributing the already written articles to the Slackware Documentation Project. You may ask that Serbian language be officially supported , see this page.
Anyway, we are actively linking and promoting Slackware Documentation Project, even if we are not currently contributing.
Thanx for asking.
