Hi Didier,

In the About Slint "Translation"...

"Two modes for installation are proposed: Auto (no Linux command to type)
and Manual for more customization. The includes a documentation."

It shouldn't be: "...... This includes a documentation."


I take this opportunity to say that the Portuguese translation is completed.

Thanks Hugo for the translation and the heads-up.

I have updated the AboutSlint.pot, now the sentence is: The installer includes a documentation.

Best regards,
Didier.

Hi Hugo,

sorry for this very late answer.

I plan to port in the "Manual" mode of installation some of the features already available in the "Auto" mode, like get an internet connection to ease setting the time zone and install the most recent packages from the remote repository instead of from the ISO, for instance, then publish a new ISO with the translations.

Meanwhile, here is the draft of the Slint HandBook: https://slint.fr/doc/HandBook.html

If you have a look at this ChangeLog: http://slackware.uk/slint/x86_64/slint- ... ngeLog.txt you'll see that I'm rather busy...

Cheers,
Didier
