Description Julian Sikorski 2006-12-16 04:55:31 EST
Description of problem:
Man pages encoded in unicode are rendered wrong, some funny characters are
displayed instead of ones that are encoded with two bytes. I am running rawhide
yelp under fc6 (it was pulled when I installed firefox 2.0).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
yelp-2.16.2-1.fc7

How reproducible:
always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install man-pages-pl
2. LANG=pl_PL.utf-8 yelp
3. Strony podrędznika -> Aplikacje -> bzip2
  
Actual results:
Dual-byte characters are busted

Expected results:
Man page should be displayed properly

Additional info:
Both man and khelpcenter have no troubles rendering the man page.

Bump. I am attaching the screenshots to ensure the problem is understood. yelp
2.18.0 still suffers from this issue.

Bump. Still present in yelp-2.18.1-5.fc7.x86_64.

Is anybody going to look into it? Either fix it, or stop shipping utf-8
manpages. I mean, honestly. I'd prefer to read an english manpage than trying to
understand this babble.

Moving this upstream.
