You still haven't answered how to install this!?

I don't think I've been asked. I don't know what you're asking either - installing Firefox or installing the firefox_getLatest.sh script? But honestly I usually can't understand your posts so you might just have to find help from someone else with whatever it is. Or maybe you're not talking to me at all? Coreplayer2 is gone though.

Possibly this is what you want (to enter in a terminal):
Code: [Select]
LANG=tr firefox_getLatest.sh -m

My native language is not English and I write correspondence via Google Translate.

my local home language is "LANG=tr"

I am asking how to download the latest firefox version in my local language with which command.

The "firefox_getLatest.sh -m" command downloads only the English version.

Thank you in advance for your reply.

Great, then it's like I said, just put "LANG=tr" at the start of the command:
Code: [Select]
LANG=tr firefox_getLatest.sh -m

" LANG=tr firefox_getLatest.sh -m " ??? This situation made me feel like a fool! :(

Please improve the code to allow entering an argument like this;

" firefox_getLatest.sh -tr "
or
" firefox_getLatest.sh -tr -m "

Can you take this suggestion into consideration!?

If your native language is English, there is no situation that affects you anyway!

But this is very important for those whose native language is not English!

The idea of LANG is that you have it set to your native language in your shell environment (shown with the command "printenv", I guess yours might be unset so it will say "LANG=C" which defaults to English), then it doesn't need to be said on the command line.

If you want to use one language for a particular program and another for everything else, then setting "LANG" at the start like "LANG=tr [program]" is the standard way to do it for any program on Linux. It overrides your usual LANG environment variable.

Adding extra command-line options isn't useful because the current approach is already consistent with most other software. It's not foolish, it makes it clear that you're deliberately overriding the language setting that other software on your system uses.

Have seen some programs even need to set the LC_ALL env variable to set the language.
Not only the LANG.
Because then setting the LC_ALL set's all LOCALE variables to that specific value.
So to be very sure with the locale variables... you need to set them like this....i think..

Code: [Select]
$LANG=C LC_ALL=C locale
LANG=C
LC_CTYPE="C"
LC_NUMERIC="C"
LC_TIME="C"
LC_COLLATE="C"
LC_MONETARY="C"
LC_MESSAGES="C"
LC_PAPER="C"
LC_NAME="C"
LC_ADDRESS="C"
LC_TELEPHONE="C"
LC_MEASUREMENT="C"
LC_IDENTIFICATION="C"
LC_ALL=C

Hi xor
Do not try to hijack this thread and make it about ezremaster.
Start a new thread for that.
