Hello, all,

I am upgrading kde to 3.3.0 as we speak and figured it was time to raise a question I've had for a while.

The kde-i18n package allows for the user to specify a series of languages to install via the LINGUAS environment variable. The ebuild picks up the requisite individual language packages from the mirror and installs them. However, not all of the upteen-gazillion languages that KDE supports are available via Gentoo. As it happens, I have had an off-and-on interest in Esperanto, and like to have it available to me. I can get the kde-i18n-eo source package off the KDE site but then how do I meld it into my Gentoo-installed kde-i18n?

The package from the KDE site is a .tar.bz2 package. The packages for each language consumed by the ebuild are .tar.bz2 packages. Are they the same? How do I source one .tar.bz2 of several from somewhere other than the customary mirrors? If not, how would I turn the .tar.bz2 package from KDE into a .tar.bz2 package suitable for consumption by emerge? Then I can tweak the .ebuild if necessary and reinstall kde-i18n, picking it up. Can somebody give me some guidance what I would have to do?

Gxis,
Lupestro

Code:
% LINGUAS=eo emerge -f kde-i18n
Calculating dependencies ...done!
>>> emerge (1 of 1) kde-base/kde-i18n-3.3.0 to /
>>> Previously fetched file: kde-i18n-eo-3.3.0.tar.bz2 MD5 ;-)
>>> md5 src_uri ;-) kde-i18n-eo-3.3.0.tar.bz2


It looks like it's already supported :)

Yes. After the update, I was pleasantly surprised to see that it did come up. This must be something they did for 3.3.0.

And I note that all the Arabic stuff is in place, too, although I know that was there for 3.2.3. It'd be nice if the Arabeyes fonts (ae_fonts) ended up in a Gentoo package or three.

Anyway, thanks, and sorry for the noise.

I'm also quite keen about Esperanto, and I'm really glad that for 3.3 something comes up, because it didn't for KDE 3.2. Thanks for this thread because I would not have found it now :)
Now I can use the Esperanto internationalization.
Mi nun estas tre ĝoja ke mi povas uzi la esperantan tradukon :)

It's not packaged for "se", which my girlfriend wants to use... And it's even in the example in the ebuild message! Tsk tsk :(
