Comment 1 Leon Ho 2003-08-05 02:40:48 UTC
Okay.. Should we iconv all tips text file to UTF-8 for Cambridge?

Comment 2 Akira TAGOH 2003-08-05 13:18:10 UTC
Yes, it should solves this problem.

proposed patch

the encoding of tips files can be guessed from the po files, I think. so
attached patch will just try to convert all tips files to UTF-8.

patch to iconv UTF-8 tips files to the native locale

This patch also supports to be ran on the native locale.

Comment 6 Akira TAGOH 2004-04-07 04:50:11 UTC
how is this going on? and can we get a chance to fix this on FC1 updates?
This problem causes really unusable for the newbie gimp users who want
to know the tips on Japanese.

Comment 7 Nils Philippsen 2004-04-08 08:13:57 UTC
I'm looking at the patch now and will likely put an updated package
out soon.

Comment 8 Nils Philippsen 2004-04-08 08:15:09 UTC
BTW: Am I supposed to apply both patches or only the second one?

Comment 9 Nils Philippsen 2004-04-08 08:52:31 UTC
I looked at your second patch and it seems like it isn't quite
consistent in using newly allocated and static strings... Guess I'll
need to overhaul the patch a bit.

overhauled patch to iconv UTF-8 tips files to the native locale

this patch strdup()s in store_tip() so we only have newly allocated strings in

Comment 12 Nils Philippsen 2004-04-08 09:42:40 UTC
Guess I'll have to apply the first patch as well...

Comment 13 Akira TAGOH 2004-04-09 03:26:23 UTC
Yes, the patch is assuming all of po files are UTF-8.

Comment 14 Nils Philippsen 2004-04-16 12:49:42 UTC
please test gimp-1.2.5-2

Comment 15 Akira TAGOH 2004-04-19 02:51:03 UTC

Comment 16 Akira TAGOH 2004-05-17 09:01:33 UTC
doh, this package wasn't pushed to FC1-updates. reopening and
reverting the status.
