Heraia uses a gtkbuilder interface. Part of it is from gtk's defaults (New, open, ...). The rest of the interface is localized via file (found in locale subdirectories). The problem is that the gtk default part appears correctly localized whereas the rest of the interface is in default language (ie not localized). I enclose an image as it worth a thousand words

The problem appears only under openindiana (tested under fedora, opensuse, ubuntu, debian and windows XP).

This is probably an issue with how your application was built. *.mo is a binary msgfmt catalog, did you use the correct msgfmt to compile it? The formats are implementation specific and differ between the system msgfmt and GNU msgfmt; due to the presence of /usr/gnu/bin in the default PATH, the latter may be picked up by accident.

You should probably create a spec file using the Desktop CBE to build your application, see examples in SFE which use export MSGFMT="/usr/bin/msgfmt".

Good catch. /usr/gnu/bin/msgfmt is used. However when /usr/bin/msgfmt (by exporting MSGFMT environment variable) the configure script complains because /usr/bin/gmsgfmt does not have --version option and the program cannot be compiled.

Please let me know what is SFE and where can I found the examples you are talking about ?

Olivier Delhomme, I see this issue has not been updated for 7 months. Is the issue you reported still a problem? To answer your question, "SFE" is "Spec-Files-Extra". It is "is a repository of RPM-like spec files for building Solaris SVr4 packages from various Open Source modules". For more information see:
