Re: OpenCPN Internationalization ( i18n )

Hakan, a little background... it is not a problem for me, for sure.
For users who have Win7x64 all 32 bit programs are generally put in
C:\Program Files (x86)
so Opencpn would go into
C:\Program Files (x86)\OpenCPN\plugins

That is the norm for Win7x64 bit. Don't know about Win 8.1 though.
Users with 64 bit should perhaps be told to change the path to the absolute path ref?

Re: OpenCPN Internationalization ( i18n )

Rick..
Ok didn't know. You know I'm basically still on XP and can even find pleasure in old fashion DOS-commands. Like old-time you know.
But if it's a rule that opencpn is installed in a directory called "program files"(x86) on 64 bit machines it would be possible rather easy.
So the rule would be that opencpn is installed in the system "programfiles" but with the supplement (x86) ?? (We can't take for granted that everyone uses "C:\" though)

Re: OpenCPN Internationalization ( i18n )

Yes on 64bit win7 all 32bit is installed there, but it has a space I believe "Program Files (x86)"

If we could just check for 64bit? Or maybe prompt the user to answer
A.32bit or
B.64bit?

Re: OpenCPN Internationalization ( i18n )

As for Linux......
I could very easy include all plugins with Git code available, in the packages I build. All languages included in each plugin would then be available as well.
This could be a way to keep separate packages for the latest Ubuntu version, which are really redundant with Nohal's launchpad site......

Well here's a new try. (I deleted a similar post a minute ago. I should have tested in W7 before upload)

Now it's late....zzzz

Not sure if it is Norton Firewall or permissions (but I am an admin). Will try to find out later.

Maybe we should be looking at some kind of installer software that allows user selections? There must be some Open Source that is good. Maybe even cross platform?

Rick..
Win permission rules can for sure be tricky. So please see if you can find a method. or---

Yeah -- good. That could be much better then trying to muddle with a batch file basically made for the old fashion DOS??

Edit:
Even if I'm a administrator I had to run the file using the "Run as administartor". Did you try that?

Re: OpenCPN Internationalization ( i18n )

Rick...
Sure nice programs but it seams a bit overkill when we are just talking about some "simple" file copying??

To be clear: Did you actually run the BAT-file using the mouse command "Run as administrator"??? I read a note about that CMD.EXE running the bat-file don't care about the user permissions.

Re: OpenCPN Internationalization ( i18n )

Highlight the batch file
CopyPluginWMM_Win32_Win64.bat
Right click and pick "Run as Administrator"

I believe it copied the language files... hard to determine. I've looked at the batch file and see the opncpn/share/local directory, but theres a lot of file at that location now. Don't know what was there before.

Also not sure about what the For command at the end does... copies a language file over the wmm-pi.mo or something?

I think batch should ask if you want to copy these files to PATH9s)? Yes No
It should then end with a message of where it copied the files to, so user can confirm.

Batch files can get pretty sophisticated, and once the form is understood others can create them too. This may actually be the best and simplest way.

I'm going back to bed. Its 5:46 here. Thanks for your great idea.

Yes - "Please follow the instructions"

A simple test I did: Delete one file that's also present in the zip-file and see if it returns.

In this case it takes for example the "de.mo" file, rename it to "opencpn-wmm_pi.mo" and copy it to the "....\de\LC_MESSAGES\" library.

As long as we can agree for a suitable method everything can be fine tuned to our satisfaction.

I'll try to write a description text how to handle the plugin files. That will probably be the most important thing for all users and operating system. To bee continued.......

And---The basic with all this is to not only distribute the binary -.dll- but also the language files to the user. All in a package. --??

Re: OpenCPN Internationalization ( i18n )

I don't really know windows, but why not make an installer program for each plugin similar to the installer for opencpn?

Re: OpenCPN Internationalization ( i18n )

Sean...
Yes that's probably the best. And since I could make a simple batch file for Windows I'm sure you can make it in C to be compiled for each system like the O installer. And I assume that it can be done rather plugin independent. It's basically the same for every plugin -copy the binary to ...\plugins\ -copy and rename the available .mo files to each directory. Furthermore we have to check if the plugin needs any additional files below ...\Opencpn\Plugins\ and if so copy also them.
I did the -mo files like this:
Code:
FOR %%G IN (ca_ES,cs,da,de,el_GR,es,et,fi_FI,fr,gl_ES,hu,hu_HU,it,nb_NO,nl,pl,pl_PL,pt_BR,pt_PT,ru,sv,tr_TR,zh_TW) DO (    
(IF EXIST "%~dp0\%%G.mo" copy "%~dp0\%%G.mo" "%_ODIR%\opencpn\share\locale\%%G\LC_MESSAGES\opencpn-wmm_pi.mo"))
Although it's Basic I think you can follow? (%~dp0 = This directory. Win7 don't know from where the batch-file is started!)


If you will like to try and I can be of any support please let me know.

Håkan
