OSM in Marble in English

Fri Mar 08, 2013 10:20 am
Hi friends

Is there any option/way to see OSM data and names in English and not in local languages when using it in Marble?

Does changing the application language (via Help > Switch Application Language) help?
Alternatively, try setting the environment variable "KDE_LANG" to the appropriate language code (such as en_US) and exporting it prior to launching Marble.

I assume you mean the image tile based map theme "OpenStreetMap". I made a custom map theme for that some time ago, you can give it a try like this:
Code: Select all
wget -q -O - http://nienhueser.de/marble/openstreetmap-i18n.tar.bz2 | tar xjf - -C ~/.local/share/marble

Afterwards select the "OpenStreetMap (english)" map theme in Marble. You can switch to other languages than english (german, spanish, french) in the legend.

The map theme is based on http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Map_ ... nalization and works as fine as stuff in openstreetmap is translated - that depends heavily on the region you're looking at. Here's a quick comparison:

Thanks my friends!

I think the last reply was the answer to my question with I already used that and it works like a charm :)
