The documentation in Portuguese was started quite some time ago and abandoned: https://trisquel.info/en/wiki/documenta%C3%A7%C3%A3o-portugu%C3%AAs-br

Feel free to revive it: the whole official documentation is a wiki. Click on the flags on the upper-right part of the interface to access the documentation in other languages.

I would like to point out that several users talk about developing work and mention languages such as C. However, as far as I understand, most of the work lies in package helpers that are small Shell scripts. In their simpler form, they almost only call sed's substitution command. In that context, the most important skill must be to know regexps: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Regular_expression#Standards

I know something about regular expression in bash I may say.
But just started studying bash shell,sed and Gawk in my spare time...
About the translation how is it done. I mean I can translate the pages I see in site from let's say english to Portuguese ( i may add that Portuguese from Portugal is the real Portuguese wich I speak and write) and too whom I should send the Translations when they are done? How this process works?
I am really interested in contribute at least for now at this level!
Thanks in advance

The documentation is a wiki: just edit it! I do not think it is worth having both pt_pt and pt_br manuals. Portuguese people can read (listening is much harder!) Brazilian Portuguese and vice versa. It may be that the "sistema operativo" becomes a "sistema operacional", the "ficheiro" may turn into a "arquivo", ... but, well, as long as no edit war is declared (and given the activity on https://trisquel.info/en/wiki/documenta%C3%A7%C3%A3o-portugu%C3%AAs-br it will not in the predictable), both variations of the language should be welcome imho.

If you want to help with development, the documentation is here:
https://trisquel.info/en/wiki/development-0

And the source code is here:
https://devel.trisquel.info/groups/trisquel

You can try to get pull requests from git that ruben can import and save him some time, but afaik everything still goes through him before being pushed.

I had a very strange dream last night. In my dream people called me senor Robotto and I was a kickass hacker. Last thing I remember before waking up is I was writing the last lines of code for my very special new distro - in the dream I referred to it as "Trisquelian 9". It was Debian main stripped of contrib and nonfree, with a nice, clean installer that never recommends any proprietary firmware in no case whatsoever. :)

EDIT: I forgot to say that in my dream senor robotto managed to purge the relative code responsible for recommending non free firmware in like 39 seconds and that impressed me a lot even if in the dream I was senor Robotto so I should have known that senor Robotto can do that in 39 sec..

basing it on debian would defeat the purpose of trisquel, why not just use debian like you already do?

Trisquel is dying, some bugs still not fixed, autoupdater crashes, some packages are outdated. This is one of the best free software distro and forum, and hope it survives. This is a lot of work for very few persons.

So is Ubuntu 14.04.

I tried the update through the configuration panel (Full Trisquel install, only added Gnome Shell).
While I didn't have an automatic prompt, it worked that way for me (and on the cli).

Outdated packages is "normal", it's part of the bargain.
As long as the vital bugs are fixed, it's ok for me.

Yes, I relatively agree with you. I was looking for another option to Trisquel like Parabola, it´s rolling release (you don´t have to wait 2 years for a new version like Trisquel) and it has very updated packages + it supports ARM

I'm not sure I understand :
"universe" repo appears in Synaptic in Trisquel while "main" is the one updated in Ubuntu?
And you can't know how often the packages are updated?

So what? I mean, what's the big deal?

After reviewing the four fundamental freedoms of libre software, from Richard Stallman's 3rd edition, I feel it is a bit of a distraction to see so much being made about Trisquel being behind other distros. If the latest security holes relate to CODECS and conveniences then maybe I am also guilty for non participation. I read about fuse exfat and learned that early versions were read-only. I could only install full featured fuse-exfat from Ubuntu's deb files into Trisquel, and it is by no means reliable. I don't complain because that is the only way to extract files from a digital camera when fitted with a 64GB or larger SD card. When I tried suggesting in a Ubuntu forum that a stable read-only version should also be made available, I was, for some reason, no longer able to log in to their forums. In that sense, Trisquel is far from being dead in my world.

Why would you want a read-only version of fuse-exfat if it now supports writing?

The commonly available digital camera I have records and deletes and formats the fuse-exFat system reasonably well most of the time. If the code for the exFat system is proprietary, at least the code for accessing the data should be made free. I do not disrespect proprietary formats, but there are unknown issues with it. I simply believe that a free version should at some time be available in a main repository that guarantees accessibility even with a chdir command from within a compiled C directory changer program.
I am a Trisquel 6.0 user who came from Ubuntu 12.04 after being unable to use Alt-tab properly with Ubuntu if it included the bash terminal there.

But fuse-exfat exists, and it is free. Are you saying that the write support is buggy? If so, you can just mount it read-only.

I'll check the license and see if I can make sense of the source code.

I always mount from bash using it with -ro option. I avoid using the gui which doesn't ask how to mount any drives and exposes me to inadvertently mounting anything in sight. Changing directories with the nautilus gui or from the shell using cd command always works. It is the chdir command from a compiled C program that causes problems when navigating into a directory where the exfat device is mounted to.
