[13:06:17] <alex_joni> does i18n work for rs274_err for anyone?
[13:06:33] <alex_joni> I just checked with LANG=de_DE and LANGUAGE=de and it doesn't seem to work

[13:56:23] <jepler> alex_joni: axis displays translated messages when generating the preview, but messages that come to the UI from task through the error channel are not translated by task
[13:56:36] <jepler> and IMO they can't be translated by the UI because they may be the result of printf-type substitution
[13:56:51] <alex_joni> ok, so task should translate them
[13:57:03] <jepler> but nobody's figured out what to add to the task (e.g., calls to setlocale and so on) to make it work and not break other stuff (e.g., the processing of fractional numbers in gcode)
[13:57:26] <jepler> iirc flo-h added some lines but that had the effect of breaking gcode parsing in locales which traditionally use "," as the separator for the fractional part of numbers
[13:57:35] <jepler> F1.0 wouldn't work any longer
[14:03:15] <alex_joni> ouch :/

[14:06:17] <micges> not good :/
[14:07:37] <alex_joni> A user also has the option of specifying different locales for different purposes--in effect, choosing a mixture of two locales.
[21:16:15] <alex_joni> this is a nice thing: http://lubi.sourceforge.net/unetbootin.html
