[Bug 379820] Re: KDE language pack updates should call kbuildsycoca4 --noincrement

Is there some particular example of when this happens?

quoting from IRC:
<apachelogger> Riddell: also bug 379820 is non-solvable IMHO ... the problem is that we get desktop file translations from mo files which are cached inside the app (e.g. plasma/kickoff)
<Riddell> apachelogger: why wouldn't a watch for the .mo files be a solution?
<apachelogger> because each app would have to watch each mo file (or at least those that are used by it)
<apachelogger> that will eat all sorts of resources big time
<apachelogger> which is exactly the reason that mo files are not watched to begin with but translations will only apply upon new login (app restart)
<apachelogger> IMHO we should slove this by triggering a reboot notification after lang-pack updates
<Riddell> hmm, that would work but seems a bit microsofty
<apachelogger> as I see it the only way to notice this issue is when you had an entry that was untranslated, that should be translated after the update
<apachelogger> that of course implies that you *know* that the entry shoudl be translated after the update
