Description Lukas Sommer 2011-12-18 08:54:30 UTC
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:8.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/8.0

I'm using german as primary language and all my applications show up in german without any problems. But virtualbox-qt doesn't. It stays in english.

However, /usr/share/virtualbox/nls/VirtualBox_de.qm comes with the package virtualbox-qt and is installed. Maybe there is a packaging error installing the localization files to a place where virtualbox-qt doesn't find them?

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Start virtualbox-qt when you have all locale settings (system-wide and KDE-wide) on germen.

Actual Results:  
virtualbox-qt shows up in english.

Expected Results:  
virtualbox-qt shows up in german.

Comment 6 Michal Seben 2012-04-18 20:49:38 UTC
Hi Lukas,

yes, from strace output I see that virtualbox is trying to open /usr/lib/virtualbox/nls directory:
open("/usr/lib/virtualbox/nls", O_RDONLY|O_NONBLOCK|O_DIRECTORY|O_CLOEXEC) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
open("/usr/lib/virtualbox/nls", O_RDONLY|O_NONBLOCK|O_DIRECTORY|O_CLOEXEC) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
but we use /lib/share/virtualbox/nls for vbox translations

so yes definitely a packaging bug, i will fix it

thanks for report !
