Not possible at the moment sorry TMG1961. Those My Computer entries require foreign translations in the code.

You can hand edit the code yourself if you are keen. If you're on 64bit, show hidden files in your home folder, go to .local/share/applications and edit:

alacarte-made-3.desktop
alacarte-made-4.desktop
alacarte-made-5.desktop
alacarte-made-6.desktop
alacarte-made-7.desktop
alacarte-made-8.desktop
alacarte-made-9.desktop
alacarte-made-10.desktop
alacarte-made-11.desktop

Under the line that says "Comment=Browse your Home folder" (or whatever it says)
make another line under it and put in "Comment[nl]=Blader door uw thuismap" (if thats right?)

Do these edits for both the 'Name' and 'Comment' lines.

example:

Code: [Select]
[Desktop Entry]
Comment=Browse your Home folder
Comment[nl]=Blader door uw thuismap
Terminal=false
Name=Home
Name=[nl]Huis
Exec=exo-open --launch FileManager %u
Type=Application
Icon=user-home

Logout/in or reboot to see the changes.

Do that for each file. If you'd like to provide the Dutch translations for each file, I'd be happy to add them to the next version of Linux Lite :)

Thanks for your answer Jerry. I will have a look at it later today and will send you the translation for each file.


Edit: I just also noticed that when i cut/paste a file from Desktop to Downloads, Documents or Public then after pasting the folder closes. It doesnt happen between any other folders.

Re. Thunar bug, try this please TMG1961:

Open Thunar
Go to Edit, Preferences
On Display tab, check then uncheck 'Show file size in binary format' at least one time.

Now do what you did before - cut/paste a file from Desktop to Downloads, Documents or Public to see if you get the folder crash again.

Great, please let me know if it comes back. In the meantime, I'll apply this fix for LL 3.2

Installed very easily and working well on my 3rd laptop (i3 4mb memory)
Starts up faster than the interminable wait on 2.8 and seems snappier

I have added Slimjet to replace Chrome and did the work-around needed to install Google Earth on 16.04 based linux

http://blog.pztop.com/2016/04/28/Install-Google-Earth-on-Ubuntu-16-04/

I am likely to be using slimjet or chromium more than before since the Arc Theme has parasited Firefox and made the tabs black and so unreadable

Apart from being quicker to load 3.0 seems to have fewer features than 2.8 so I will stick with that on my main machine

Thanks for all your work. Lite remains the best and most user friendly Linux distro

Thanks for your feedback bfb. In Firefox you can change the Arc Theme. Tools, Addons, Appearance.

@newtusmaximus, did the 3com card work on 2.8 before you installed the 4.5 kernel, or did installing the 4.5 kernel make the 3com card work?

Jerry,  the 3 Com card worked on LL2.0 32 standard Kernel.    Upgrades through the LL2 version again without problems.  At 2.8 started to play with Kernels .Reason for then  updating to  Kernel to 4.0  and then later to 4.5.0 was really to see where the " Break" point was - future proofing this 2003 machine.

Hence surprised that LL3.0 appears to have a problem??  Certainly on Live DVD anyway.  Use this old A10 as my email back up (work) and therefore reluctant to do clean install unless confident that wifi card will work straight off.

Next machine  to upgrade (32 bit)  will be the work desktop which is LAN connected but will only do that when I have mastered the Google Earth work around.  GE integral part of work tasks.
