It should be fixed with the latest git master, although only the .ui file extention is recognized.

The answers to these questions are:

  • Yes. libglade files and gtkbuilder files are two seperate animals (although they are similar, and have the same purpose).
  • Yes intltool-extract version 0.41.1 seems to extract gtkbuilder file strings if you give it the --type=gettext/glade option. (it seems to automatically distinguish between libglade files and gtkbuilder files)

Thanks for the suggestion.

Since I am not a GNOME developer, the situation is not clear to
me, and I need a bit of your help in order to understand what
needs to be done:
- Can you point me to some example .gtkbuilder files
(preferrably in some released tarballs or under version
control of some project)?
- Can you point me to the specification of .gtkbuilder files
(how they are meant to be structured, or the schema if it's
an XML file format).
- I see that there is a tool "gtk-builder-convert" whose job
is to convert glade files to .gtkbuilder files. So presumably
the two file types are not the same?
- Is there support for .gtkbuilder files in some intltool

Guessing the file type with libmagic is something that is too
unreliable. Let's leave this idea aside.

OR... even better try to guess the file type with libmagic !
