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.
HI, i tried sargon78 method, all wend good but my dlna 1.1.5 is still in english, i don't understand!
Could someone help me?
Make sure your locales are set properly. Rebuild your database with '-R' after any locale changes.
Thanks for answer...
Locales are set properly... I double-checked everything and there's no problem.
It's for a raspberry server under Jessie... Is it a problem?
-R is for /etc/init.d/minidlna? in this case it doesn't work...
You should run the program and not the init script. If you are using a recent version, add grep locale to see which locale is being used.
minidlna -d -v -R -f /path/to/minidlna.conf | grep locale
Thanks for answer, unfortunately, when i use command:
minidlna -d -v -R -f /path/to/minidlna.conf | grep locale`
It tells me that command doesn't exists!
` -bash: minidlna : commande introuvable`
sudo minidlnad -d -v -R -f /etc/minidlna.conf | grep locale
But console doesn't give me any answer and there's nothing in log!
No Idea? :D
Use a recent version of minidlna >= 1.1.6 (currently only available in git). It will have locale debugging.
