Description Daniel Resare 2002-12-28 12:18:50 EST
Description of problem: when i start up gnome-terminal in a freshly installed phoebe system the "Terminal" -> "Character encoding" menu has two entries, both Unicode (UTF-8) Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): gnome-terminal-2.1.3-2 How reproducible: always Steps to Reproduce: 1. create a new account 2. start gnome-terminal 3. take a look at the Terminal -> Character encoding submenu Actual results: Double "Unicode (UTF-8)" entries Expected results: I suppose a resonable default i would be "Unicode (UTF-8)" and "Western (ISO-8859-1)"

I swear I added code to fix that at one point, but yes I see the same.
Comment 2 Havoc Pennington 2003-01-02 17:13:54 EST
the current fix code is too limited, we need to strip all duplicates out of the list of encodings.
Comment 3 Nalin Dahyabhai 2003-01-09 19:02:47 EST
Better to just default to listing the locale's encoding, and if it's not UTF-8, UTF-8 as well -- as these are the only options available to applications which want to change the terminal's encoding.

* What if I install in Czech with Chinese as an additional language? (zh_CN.gb18030) * That locally-installed applications can't use locale with a specific encoding doesn't mean that I don't need the terminal to convert that encoding (consider SSH-ing to a different computer).

gnome-terminal 2.1.4 eliminates the duplicates. > * What if I install in Czech with Chinese as an additional language? > (zh_CN.gb18030) The encoding menu is user-customizable, you can add whatever you want in there. > * That locally-installed applications can't use locale with a specific > encoding doesn't mean that I don't need the terminal to convert that > encoding (consider SSH-ing to a different computer). The encoding menu supports converting from any encoding that your C library supports. There's really nothing else we can do. I think we always install all the C library encoding support though (run "iconv -l" to list all the encodings glibc knows about).
