Garuda-Assistant: System settings not working when translated (German)

Hey guys,

I have a problem when using Garuda-Assistant and switching to German as the system language:
In the system settings the checkboxes of installed services are not checked in the translated version despite the services being installed and running. Checking the boxes and applying the changes doesn't do anything. The checkboxes to enable services (e.g. NetworkManager or Bluetooth) do work as intended.

I have a feeling like Garuda-Assistant cant access which applications are installed and in what user groups the current user is while translated. It has normal functionality in reading and writing the status of those services however. I attach two screenshots (English and German) so it's pretty clear what the problem is.


English (working normally)

Let me do some testing and see if I can replicate it.

I looked up the translation file in translations/garudaassistant_de.ts · master · Garuda Linux / Applications / Garuda Assistant · GitLab and the parts which are still in English either didn't provide a translation or have a typo (e.g. line 993 "Pipewire support" instead of "PipeWire support", so I guess then the translations isn't used?). I didn't check everything but I think it translated everything it found in the translation file.

I found the problem. The action types "package" and "group" were translated. Let me make those untranslatable.


Thanks for reporting this. It should be fixed next time the package is updated.


@dalto, you da man. :clap: :+1:
