Translations: lupdate throws error on Mac OS X 10.6.8 with Qt 4.8.4



  • I see this when trying to update translation strings:
    @lupdate -source-language de_DE -target-language en_GB -locations relative abtransfers.pro
    Updating translations...
    lupdate warning: -target-language usually only makes sense with exactly one TS file.
    /opt/macports-test/share/qt4/mkspecs/features/qt_functions.prf(240): Function 'system' is not implemented

    What is going on here?

    qt_functions.prf seems to have problems with 'system'...

    Do I need to worry about this?

    I ask, because the file contained already tons of translated strings. The update, however, wiped them all away! :-(



  • Turns out the non-translated strings were caused by a wrong path specification in the pro file.

    But the weird thing concerning the not implemented system function persists.
