Gnumeric Portable 1.12.17 - How to select Italian language?

Hi,
I have run the PAF installer for Gnumeric Portable, then I have open Gnumeric: interface is in english.
So I have browsed inside of
--> C:\PortableApps\GnumericPortable\App\Gnumeric\share\locale\it\LC_MESSAGES
and there are some .mo files for italian language.

Then I have seen in -> C:\PortableApps\GnumericPortable\App\AppInfo\Launcher the file 'GnumericPortable.ini' and last rows are:
[LanguageStrings]
en_US=en
(changed to: it_IT=it)

I have also changed in -> C:\PortableApps\GnumericPortable\Data\settings the file 'GnumericPortableSettings.ini' by adding, before [GnumericPortableSettings] two lines:
[Language]
LANG=IT

The file -> C:\PortableApps\GnumericPortable\App\AppInfo 'appinfo.ini' tell that Gnumeric is Multilingual.
I think that is necessary recompile the file 'GnumericPortable.exe' (PAF Launcher) for solve this.
But how change [LanguageStrings] for run Gnumeric as Multilingual ?

Thanks.

it

The language code is it. If you're launching it solo, you don't need to edit anything in the app, just the GnumericPortableSettings.ini file to set Language=it within the [GnumericPortableSettings] section.

If you're launching it with the platform, it seems there's a bug in the Italian.locale file in the current release. Open it within the PortableApps.com\App\Locale directory and change Localeglibc=it in the first section. That will fix the issue. I'll have this fixed in the next platform release.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Gnumeric Portable 1.12.17 - How to select Italian language?

I launch it solo, without platform.
Just tried.
I have modified the file 'GnumericPortableSettings.ini' with these modification:

[Language]
LANG=IT

then with modification

[Language]
Language=IT

then with 'it' instead of 'IT'.

it doesn't work in any way..

Finally solved!
Here is the solution for the file 'GnumericPortableSetting.ini'

[Language]
Language=IT
[GnumericPortableSettings]
LastDrive=C:
LastDirectory=\PortableApps\GnumericPortable
;Language=en_US
Language=it_IT
[PortableApps.comLauncherLastRunEnvironment]
PAL:LastPortableAppsBaseDir=C:

Many thanks to John T. Haller for his support.

You can simplify it to this:

[GnumericPortableSettings]
LastDrive=C:
LastDirectory=\PortableApps\GnumericPortable
Language=it
[PortableApps.comLauncherLastRunEnvironment]
PAL:LastPortableAppsBaseDir=C:

The issue with your earlier one is that your Language setting was in the wrong section.
