Re: Finding strings in GNOME

this method of yours actually works perfectly!
Is it possible to extend this script to use multiple locations as there are at least 2 ...
  • /usr/share/locale/da/LC_MESSAGES/
  • /usr/share/locale-langpack/da/LC_MESSAGES/
and to also include .mo and .po files.

Anyhow, thank you very much, it is usable as in this form also!

With pyg3t [1] you can do:

    gtgrep --accel=_ Test filename.po

It ignores the accelerator character when matching and also prints the
whole msgid+msgstr+comments rather than just the matching line.

For checking files in many directories, one would use find and xargs.  E.g.:

    find -name "*.po" | xargs gtgrep --accel=_ Test
