I have a request for the applet
I've noticed that I often have to switch between 2 languages (basicaly en->fr and fr->en)
but the menu doesn't let me do that easily (or maybe I've missed something)
it seems that you have to select the "from" and te "to" languages from the long list, and it's not very convenient.

since the user will most probably always use the same languages, it would be nice to have a list of predefined couples.
this list could be placed directly in the main menu to be quickly accessible
the problem is to find a way to add/remove a predefined couple (maybe with an entry to add/remove the current one).

seeing your problem, I'd also suggest a "swap languages" option in right menu

or two modes : as your main language shouldn't change often.
  • Get a list of preferred language in config
  • menu checkbox (and shortcut) to allow easily swapping between something that could be described as reading (other language to your main) and writing (your language to the other one) mode
  • 2 select list for translate and main language

Right button over the icon -> "Switch languages" does not fit your needs ? Because it swap between the current pair of languages. That was already a Matttbe's suggestion that I've coded. I will think about the preferred languages list. Nice suggestion.

oh, sorry if I missed it
how does it work ? does it swap the 2 languages "from"/"to" ? (this is actually what I need, but I could want to switch between 3 languages often, and then a user-defined list would be convenient too).

@Fabounet: Yes, swap between from/to. In cases where there is more than a pair, only the "preferred pairs" would save us.

Anyway, in cases where you have 3 or more, the selection would be manual, through menu, for example. At least the way I think it now.

may I complete my explaination to see if that would be usable :

First in the config :
  • the preferred languages list (full checkbox maybe)
  • main language : choice between a fixed one (select) and list (same choice, or maybe with only those in preffered)
then in the right menu :

  • Writing mode (checkbox) : enable mode your language -> other language. So we could have shortcuts for toggle, read and write. I guess the common case is when you want to read other languages text so it would be the default unchecked.
  • Translated : select list of preferred languages. Selected one with a checked mark.
  • My language : if list enabled only, select list of preferred languages. Selected one with a checked mark.


so we don't have to manage pairs of languages list, and it should suit all needs easily without too much config.

with your idea we could have a menu like that :

preferred languages --> 2n entries "main language -> language i" and "language i -> main language"
write mode <--.
read mode <---- these 2 entries are mutually exclusive (checkbox)
all languages --> N entries

the scroll could be used to quickly switch between read and write (or between the preferred languages)

@Fabounet: I have one doubt. Where can I read about the widgets that can be generated with the applet .conf file ? I mean, all those widgets in the of an applet's Configuration screen are generated when the .conf file is parsed. So, for example, a
#b Lock position ?
generates a checkbox with label "Lock position", and
#l[item1, item2]
generates a select list filled with "item1" "item2", and so on. Since I've writing applets for CD I saw it but never found the doc.

half of the src/gldit/cairo-dock-gui-factory.h file

yep, or you can just look into the config file of a plug-in that has the same widget you want

I was sure I saw a double select list widget somewhere (the one where you can switch items between list), but can't find it anymore.
Am I confusing with the clipboard one ?

you can have a list with a checkbox on each line (cf Animated Icons)
it could be used to select the preferred languages

Yes, I was looking for that, and found in that source pointed by SQP the #E[item;item;item] (checkbox list).

The Translator is listed as Extra for 2.2.0 only, but it works for 2.1.3 >= CD Version < 2.2.0 also. Actually, the CD version I'm using, and also testing it is 2.1.4-0beta1. This separation was done because the new options for categories ?

Hello

This separation was done because the new options for categories ?
Yes and also for two other reasons:
  • Because I use the latest version
  • And because the 2.2.0 version has been released


But you can also give me a tarball for this version and the corresponding diff (you can do the changes into cairo-dock-plug-ins-extras directory and launch "bzr diff your_directory")

I think this applet should not bother to work with the 2.1.3, since the official version is now 2.2.0.
so it's better to remove any test on the version, and assume that you are using the latest DBus API, it makes the code much easier to read and maintain (and saves you some work )
the applet will only be available if it matches the dock's version, so no need to worry about that.

@Fabounet: I agree about the maintainment aspect. No worries, I'm one of those that still use CD in its older versions, so, if the code does not have a back-compatibility, automatically I can not use it. My question was just to understand, there is no problem to list it just in 2.2.0 extras. Cheers.

Added the dictionary capability. If you provide only one word to the translator, it returns the dictionary with nouns, verbs, adjectives, and interjections that Google would. http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1433190/doCkranslator/doCkranslator_dictionary.png
