So to fix the original string, I had to change the filenames. In the configuration dialog this one will be a translated label to select. But you are right about beeing careful. I discussed that one with Slavek already and we have to test it.
Hi Chris, I still don't understand. I searched all tde-i18n for "button_large_down" which is part of the name of one of the renamed files in this PR. There is no results from the search. So I think this PR has no strict relationship with translation files.
Still good to rename the files though, just need to make sure we rename in packaging repo too.
Hello Michele, I just looked for that again and yes, it seems that the string will be extracted without the "_" in the string. And only the first part. For example "KDE_Button" will be "KDE Button". You can look for the source in Weblate and you will see "tiles". It doesn't link to any source string, you can click at.
You can search for the above linked translation in your language and look the following entries. You will see:
The string will be extracted from the "_" and will be converted to all upper case for first char, it seems. And only the first part will be used. Maybe for "large" and "tiny" there are additional translations, which will be added to the translation string in the code.
@MicheleC, @Chris is correct. I'll take it from the other end. When you open the Control Center / Desktop / Panels / Appearance, you will see the Button Backgrounds group. There you will see lists with values like KDE Button, Blue Wood, Green Wood, etc.
This list is generated by searching for tiles files (specifically *_tiny_up.png), underscores are converted to spaces and the first letters of the words are capitalized – see lookandfeeltab_impl.cpp.
For the strings obtained in this way, i18n() is also used so that they can be localized. Therefore, in tde-i18n you won't find KDE_button_large_down, but KDE Button. See extracting strings in CMakeL10n. Therefore, after renaming the tiles files we need to update the template and translations 😺
Ah ok, now I get the process and understand the various steps involved. Thanks for the explanation.
are we going to do something with this PR or should we simply close it off? Chris has been MIA for long time. The file renaming is good but not a critical thing....
