I have just installed MiniDlna on an ARM based computer. Everything works well except I get all messages on my Bravia KDL40W5500 in english.
Looking at the Minidlna source code, I have seen that other languages were available.
Searching for the answer with Google, I have found people talking about "Frontview". Is it a TV option ?
How is it possible to trigger the use of another language ?
Does it make sense to add an option in the Minidlna configuration file to set the language or is there another option ?
Frontview is the web management console for ReadyNAS. If you're not using a ReadyNAS, you'll have to create the localization files using msgfmt, and manually install them in the appropriate directory (usually something like usr/share/locale/).
I finally got it working thanks to your reply.
I ran "dpkg-reconfigure locale" and installed my locale (fr_FR.UTF-8).
I went to the directory "po" coming from the initial tar file and executed "msgfmt fr.po -o minidlna.mo".
I moved the resulting file into /usr/share/locale/fr/LC_MESSAGES.
Then, I added the line "export LC_MESSAGES=fr_FR" in the /etc/init.d/minidlna file.
