Calling all arabic speakers…

trusty - VMware Player (Non-commercial use only)_084Today I’ve made a small tweak to my Rhythmbox plugin – Alternative Toolbar – to support Right-To-Left languages such as Arabic.  The play button is now the correct direction for your locale 🙂

So for you Ubuntu 14.04 arabic users – enjoy … there is a but though.  As you can see, the locale contains a mixture of english and arabic.

So please help me to help you.  If you are an arabic speaker – or know someone who is, please can you translate the plugin into your language or specific locale.  It is very easy – just pop over to Launchpad here, select your language and locale and just submit your translations.

Alternative Toolbar already supports many languages – more would be welcome.

  • installation instructions for the plugin can be found in this post.

  1. I don’t really know how RTL thinking works on iconography / general logic, but here is my take on the “previous play next” (LTR) buttons in your app: Shouldn’t it be “next play previous” for RTL? And as next should point to the left because you read from right to left, shouldn’t it be [ « ◀ » ] ?
