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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insatll with Russian locale
2. run any gtk+ app (gimp)
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
The normal UTF-8 file would work perfectly fine for russian if
Xlib was configured correctly.
