Is there a place we can submit a special installer note to this website?
In the Standalone installer for Gramps Portable (recently updated from 2015 Gramps version 3.4.9 to 2020 version 5.1.3), there are some configuration quirks for non-English users.
As described on your Languages page, the
.ini setting for
DefaultIfNotExists must be customized for the Gramps interface to show another language.
8. If this file does not exist, then [Language]:DefaultIfNotExists is read, environment variables parsed in it, and set as the value for %PAL:LanguageCustom%.
But, in addition, files must be placed to enable spellcheck dictionaries and affix grammar . The dialect-specific Dictionary (
.dic) and Affix (
.aff) files must be copied to the appropriate Python PyEnchant subfolder.
We have not done structured testing using the Portable Apps Platform. But the Standalone also did not adapt to the French user's OS language. Its interface still defaulted to English ... and so French had to be selected manually.
