I've designed a system to handle special folders like ~/Desktop and
~/Music in a desktop-independent way that allows for translation of
these directories. See
I've gotten some translations so far (mostly from gnome translators),
but I'd like to get more. This will be in Fedora 7, so it would be nice
if we could get a wide coverage before that is released. It just
contains a few strings to be translated, so it should be easy to do.
The code can be accessed with:
cvs -d :pserver:email@example.com:/cvs/user-dirs co xdg-user-dirs
Things are in the po/ directory like with any gettext translated
packages. All strings are used as filenames, and are availible with and
without first letter capitalized.
Please send all pofiles to me and i'll merge them.
