Description Roman J. Mashirov 2003-07-30 09:19:12 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; ru-RU; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030701

Description of problem:
gtk 1 programs (gimp, gnumeric, etc.) represent squares instead of russian
letters while using UTF-8 locale due to incorrect configuration in /etc/gtk

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insatll with Russian locale
2. run any gtk+ app (gimp)

Additional info:

To fix the problem need to add aproppriate gtk configuration with correct
cyrillic font (/etc/gtk/gtkrc.ru_RU.utf8) Appropriate configuration file attached.

Though, in RH 9 only one font from the default distribution has correct cyrillic
in UNICODE, is it possible to add more fonts?

Created attachment 93256 [details]
/etc/gtk/gtkrc.ru_RU.utf8 which fixes the problem

Comment 2 Owen Taylor 2003-10-27 20:25:06 UTC
The normal UTF-8 file would work perfectly fine for russian if 
Xlib was configured correctly.
