lokalize Junk data with qt 4.7.1 – workaround 2 (fedora)

when lokalize crash problem was fixed, then New problem arrived – Junk data in translated field

(check video here)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run lokalize with translation file (PO file)
2. input something in local language (other than English)
3. Use BackSpace to delete some (not all)
5. Page Down (Move to next string)
6. Page Up (Move back to original String

Actual results:
Junk data inserted in text field automatically, which is not typed

Expected results:
Only Text should be there, which is typed, works fine with BackSpace

KDE bug 249373, kde-i18n mailing list discussion

OpenSUSE, kbuntu and Arch Linux user confirmed that problem.

Fedora workaround for this is below (on Fedora 14):
1) yum remove qt (it will remove whole kde, will not effect much if you are using other than KDE desktop)
2) yum remove kdelibs-common
3) Disable fedora-updates.repo (/etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-updates.repo)  (enabled=0)
4) yum install kdesdk (or other package which you want to install for kde)

Now your lokalize should work normal (qt-4.7.0-3.fc14.x86_64 from fedora 14 Released repo), but note 
that you are not going to get any update for your system (which includes security fixes also)

Nokia provide fix (Crash issue) for qt-4.7.2, but that patch was backport to 4.7.1 for many
distribution. Nobody respond to bug yet (from Nokia).

KDE 4.4 and Indian Calendar System

I have never seen anywhere such a system,
but in KDE 4.4, in which Indian Calendar system
can be choose at Desktop system. 
In kde, choose systemsettings->Regional & Language
->Language-> Time and Date.
There is  Indian Calendar, so after login and logout,
you can check it.
Following image has enough detail about it.

KDE 4.4 with Phalgun Month

KDE 4.4 Beta on my Desktop

While I skipped using KDE from last few months,
after release of KDE4 Beta, tried again.

first impression “Woh!”

please check few screenshot of KDE4 on Fedora 13 (Rawhide)

1) Desktop with few

2) Adding few more widgets (Mac’s Impression)

3) Google translate English to Hindi, Amritsar Weather

4) Activities, which still I failed to understand what and how to do with this:-)

Hope to KDE4 more acceptable in daily work than previous KDE4 releases….

KDE 4.3 – lokalize fixed

after kde 4.2 release, lokalize has problem
to Find or Replace Text. It was big problem
to Edit Translation files (po) with Lokalize,
if you want to find or replace some text in
But KDE 4.3 release, it is fixed and now
you can find/replace text. Catalogmanager
it is now automatic show status of all
files. Both the fix are quit helpful for
Fedora 11 and Fedora 10 Users can get
those package (kdebase-4.3* etc) by
enable test repo with following command
$yum update –enablerepo=updates-testing

but if you can wait for days, then you can get
package with yum update only.

period for which lokalize has problem, I
tried alternative PO Editor, which as
few different, but impressive features.

Using automatic login with Fedora

I am using Gnome as desktop f rom some time, while not

big fan of gnome. GDM (gnome display manager) is

default manager. When it is changed to new source code,

there is not Graphical option to configure automatic

login with this. I was trying various time to search

automatic login feature (but I am not command line

user or expert, so not like to change configuration).

finally I got a solution for this. to do this you have

to do following steps:

1) Change GDM->KDE

2) change KDE configuration for Automatic login

3) by KDM, change desktop to Gnome (if you want to

use gnome)

1) easy method is to remove gdm with all dependency

$yum remove gdm

while make sure kdm installed on your machine

2) run systemsettings->Advanced->Login Manager

after application opened, go to Convenience (7),

select “Enable Auto-Login

User “”

“Lock session”

3) reboot your machine and you will be auto login

with selected user. it will default go to KDE, but

you can use gnome by Logout, select “Session” and

select “Gnome” and afterward you will be automatic

login to gnome session.

there can be various way to do this, but as I like use only

Graphical Interface for most configuration, so I tried this.

ya, kdm package need to install to work this, which will

pull some kde application.

Fedora 11 – New phase for Indic Language

Fedora 11 got release last week and it
is best Operating system for Indic language.
When I said best, there are various reasons
for it.

(*) Live CD – One live CD for multiple languages
Download Live CD

Just download a single Live CD, boot your
system with it and Please don’t forgot to
Press “Languages” Tab at Login screen.
Yes, you can get various Language including
Indic. Nepali, Maithili, Urdu are new language
available for Fedora 11. All other
languages, like Assamese, Bengali,
Gujarati, Hindi, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi,
Oriya, Punjabi, Tamil, Telugu, Sinhala
are already there.

No need to make and distribute separate
Live CD for each language, just select any
language and you can get everything ready
with that.
I tested my language Punjabi, while
selecting, Interface, Input Method are
working like pre-installed Punjabi OS.

For more information regading Fedora,
please check

(*) Ibus – New Input Method with new feature:
Till fedora 11, default input method (to type
language), was SCIM, which was advanced with
various features, but logout-login again with
every change was really bad, but no worries,
now Fedora 11 has Ibus, with which you can
just change anything on fly (like Add new keymap,
language, or anything for your language) and just
start type. Yes, it is working
at the most you need to ‘restart’ you
ibus only and it works (really!). Any
change for language you and just use it.
It is quite good feature.
Interface of Ibus setting is quite simple and

(*) Multimedia –
Fedora 11 is ready with all multimedia
feature, just install RPM Fusion package and
you don’t need anything more after to add to
run mp3, wma or video files.

(*) If you are found of KDE Desktop, Fedora also
provide KDE Live CD

evening to make error free translation…

waiting from last few weeks to update few translated files, those have errors and I know that:-)

gnome-power-manager – > last time I did a lot of translation for this and 2 translation Errors were there, I got those, but was in hurry so committed as it is. Finally It is over, but need to find fine editor on Mac. Poedit, LocFactory Editor not work as I was not expert with those, finally KDE4 installatin helped me and lokalize Make it possible.

kde4 – plasma’s translation was really un-understandable, and just today I got on my newly laptop, that line is first to see:-(
that line hit me and I started work to remove Error.

so, finally committed changes and gnome/kde desktop for Punjabi is more good than before.
