I haven't seen you comment before. This time I can't agree with you :)
What about the situation when people would like to have some additional languages on lists, but not using them as favorite? It wouldn't be possible with your implementation. In case if someone would like to have listed only favorite languages he/she could use "All" button. - Aug 24 2011
It is possible to compile GSTranslator against gtk2, but it will require some changes in code since I've used several functions introduced in gtk3. So I could prepare version for gtk2, but I won't :)
The point is GSTranslator uses extensively notifications. Gnome3 handles notifications in a modern way, which actually fits to translator-like apps. I mentioned in changelog that it already works with KDE4, but IMHO notification area in KDE seems to be a bit old-fashioned and impractical. So this is why I'd like people run GSTranslator only on Gnome3.
I'm not even sure if it works with Unity. AFAIK Unity is based on gtk2.
I've tested GSTranslator under Fedora 15 and Arch. - Aug 24 2011
New version (0.3.1) doesn't require libkeybinder anymore. - Aug 16 2011
Yes, I agree with you, and I will change that. - Aug 16 2011
As you can read in README GSTranslator requires keybinder-3.0. It has to be version 3.0 for gtk3! Some distribution didn't prepare new package yet (e.g. Fedora http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/packageinfo?packageID=11135 only for gtk2).
But you can build/compile this library following instructions https://github.com/engla/keybinder#readme (this is a small library so it shouldn't be a problem).
If you are using Arch look at AUR https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=48856 - Aug 16 2011
Ok. It is not a bug, it is a feature :)
Simply, you can't block ("Hidden") and use as favorite ("Favorite") the same element at the same time. E.g. favorite English to German, so you have to delete English and German from Hidden list. This dialog points which language needs to be deleted from second list: "Element "German" needs to be fixed.". It always happens when specified language will occur on both lists.

Because you edited config file manually it is recommended to restore the original config.xml file (delete or rename ~/.config/gstranslator/config.xml). Due to inconsistencies between "Favorite" and "Hidden" lists, it is likely that GSTranslator will crash when you will traverse between favorites. - Aug 12 2011

First of all, thanks for feedback.

1) This is an old feature and I thought I've tested it enough... Unfortunately I can't reproduce it, though I tried many combination. I need some information from you:
- which languages you've tried to add?
- bug occurs when: (any output in the console?)
a) you select two languages, click "Add" button and nothing happens?
b) or click "Add" and languages were added to the list correctly, but when click "Ok" it doesn't save the results to config file? (or maybe app crashes?)
- could you upload your config file somewhere?
- whether the second list ("Hidden") working properly? You are able to add and delete elements and save result to the file?

2) These are warnings. I'm using Glade in Anjuta and this tool generated ui files. You could edit /usr/share/gstranslator/ui/gstranslator.ui and remove line: <property name="n_rows">5</property> to easily get rid of these messages.

Tomorrow, I will try to add some debug messages. - Aug 12 2011
