Description neilbgr 2011-08-07 09:09:47 UTC
In order to have automatic translated string in dialogs (like FileChooseDialog, or simple Dialog), I must removing the unexpected language prefix of the *.mo file in the [gtksharp_insall_dir]\shared\locale\LL\LC_MESSAGE\ (LL_*.mo => *.mo).
Perhaps it's a wrong way... but what's the explanation of this kind of naming ?

I'm running under :
ms windows xp sp3, dotnet 4 (but the application is compiled for dotnet 2), latest gtksharp 2.12.10
