Hi all,

2013/11/18 Anton Meixome <>


Can you setup galician too?

You know, Google Play Store is not available on my language but others
with free software and more cultural sensibility, have
it. Google Spain (Madrid) is blocking service in galician, since years)

My hope ... I'm talking f-droid repository

Android is a litle nightmare about locales supporting, and force tying
app's locale to OS locale is not the optimal solution, because user only
can select locales based on a list defined by device manufacturer. That's
is, same Android release (4.2) can show different locales based on
manufacturer (Samsung, LG, Sony...), or a locale currently supported wasn't
supported in older Android releases.

For sample. Catalan locale (ca-ES) is supported by Android upstream
project, but it's removed by some manufacturers and was'nt supported in
Android 2.x and 3.x releases, :((

IMHO, the best approach is add a drop-box select menu in "Impress remote
control" settings to allow customization of app's language menu. With this
option enabled we have two benefits:

1st.- "Impress Remote" language is not tied to Android language.
2nd.- Unsupported Android locales (or removed by manufacturer) can be
supported by "Impress Remote". Currently, only languages with 2 letters are
supported by resource packaging system. See [2].
