Description Peter Andreasen 2004-05-25 10:28:14 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT 5.0; 

Description of problem:
Installation of Fedora Core 2 is "Full". Default system language is 
set to British English. One user account is set up and at first login 
language preference is set to Danish. In all other programs the 
international characters and the keyboard layout work fine. But in 
the openoffice programs when entering æøå on the keyboard, æøÃÂ¥ is 
what shows up on the screen.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select language "Danish" at login
2. In oowriter, try to enter æøå

Actual Results:  Screen shows æøÃÂ¥ 

Expected Results:  The screen should show æøå

Additional info:

It is possible to insert the characters via the "insert special char" 
menu option.

I have the same problem.

However, this is resolved if the iiimf service is stopped using the
command "service iiimf stop". Is this an iiimf bug or an OOo bug?

Additional comment: If oowriter is started from the command line I 
can change the value of LANG and the following happens:

[kevin@localhost kevin]$ export LANG=da_DK.utf-8
[kevin@localhost kevin]$ oowriter
I18N: X Window System doesn't support locale "da_DK.utf-8"
(here I can not even enter æøå, those keys are dead)

[kevin@localhost kevin]$ export LANG=da_DK.UTF-8
[kevin@localhost kevin]$ oowriter
(no warning but when I enter æøå I just get the same gibberish as 
described before)

[kevin@localhost kevin]$ export LANG=da_DK.iso8859-15
[kevin@localhost kevin]$ oowriter
I18N: X Window System doesn't support locale "da_DK.iso8859-15"
(Now æøå work in oowriter despite the warning from X)

Please test with OOo 1.1.1-6 that's now available in Rawhide.
