Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 103716
less skips first lines of wide CJK text
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:31 EST
Description of problem:
When less displays CJK text that is wider than the terminal,
it skips a number of the initial lines.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Inside an 80x24 terminal (or narrower if necessary) run say:
% LANG=ja_JP.UTF-8 ls -lt /usr/bin | less
A number of the initial lines are skipped by less initially.
All the text including the initial total line should have been displayed
I can reproduce this in gnome-terminal, kterm, uxterm and konsole.
If the terminal is wide enough to display each of the initial lines
then all the text from the top is displayed fine.
Press Esc-> and then Esc-< brings the very top of the text into display.
I realised that this doesn't show up in a default account,
so I need to provide more information on how to reproduce this...
