Description Janos Lichtenberger 2004-05-25 09:28:56 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1)

Description of problem:
Any non-English character (above ASCII 127) input using an
international  keymap in an ooffice application yield strange
character displayed in the application. I tried Hungarian and Czech
keymap, the result is the same. The keymaps work fine in other X
applications and the non-English characters can be copied to ooffice
and this way are displayed fine. The strange characters appear in
printout too. I attach an X window dump showing what happen if I type
accented Hungarian characters in ooffice writer (the wright character
s were copied from another application)

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start any ooffice component
2. Choose e.g. Hunagrian keymap
3. Press "0", ";" and "'" (these correspond to some accented Hungarian
characters in the Hungarian keymap)


Actual Results:   Funny characters 

Expected Results:  right accented characters

Please test with OOo 1.1.1-6 that's now available in Rawhide.
Comment 3 Dan Williams 2004-07-28 09:23:09 EDT
Can you now test instead with 1.1.2-1 in rawhide?
Comment 4 Janos Lichtenberger 2004-07-29 05:55:26 EDT
I got some advice straight by email: this bug appears only on full 
FC2 install and related to kanji(?) input daemons: iiimf, canna and a 
third one I cannot recall at the moment (I'm on holiday noy using my 
PC). If they are stopped, OOo with international characters are 
perfect. I supposed you also got this message, thus I didn't pass it 
to bugzilla. Sorry about that.
Comment 5 Dan Williams 2004-07-29 09:12:13 EDT
Yes, this _should_ be fixed with 1.1.2-1 or 1.1.1-6, see Bugzilla
124538.  If you could verify that you no longer have a problem, that
would be great.
Comment 6 Janos Lichtenberger 2004-07-29 14:52:12 EDT
Yes, I confirm that I have no problem with international characters 
in OOo. Thank you for your help
Comment 7 Dan Williams 2004-07-30 09:54:30 EDT
Great! Thanks.
