Description Flags
the ugly gnome startup sound with swedish chars in title none

Description Daniel Resare 2002-08-12 09:29:27 UTC
Description of Problem:
starting with limbo xmms has stopped displaying non-ascii chars in the scrolling
text of the main window. If you right-click on the tite and select 'File info'
you get the name correctly with non-ascii chars.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
xmms-1.2.7-9

How Reproducible:
always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. download and play the attached ogg
2. watch the scrolling song title
3. watch the title in the file info dialog

Actual Results:
in the scrolling text all non-ascii chars are replaced by blank


Additional Information:
the problem is reproducible in locales sv_SE.UTF-8 and en_US

It's almost certainly interpreting the file title as unicode. What locale are
you running in?

Comment 3 Daniel Resare 2002-08-15 09:22:18 UTC
As i stated above the problem is reproducible in at least locales sv_SE.UTF-8
and en_US (which seems to default to ISO-8859-1). In the C locale (that has
charset ANSI_X3.4-1968, that is US-ASCII) no non-ascii characters gets
displayed, neither in the scrolltext or in the File info dialog, which is logical.
