Description Peter H. Jones 2015-09-09 09:28:43 EDT
Description of problem:
man page is unreadable (shows character codes) when terminal character encoding is set to ISO-8859-1, works fine when encoding is Unicode (UTF-8). I like to keep my encoding to ISO-8859-1 for ease of use with a university server that uses that code, and I want to avoid having to reset the encoding if I have to reconnect.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
man-db-2.7.1-8.fc22.x86_64
man-pages-3.81-3.fc22.noarch
gnome-terminal-3.16.2-1.fc22.x86_64
dnf-1.1.1-2.fc22.noarch

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set terminal encoding to ISO-8859-1
2. man yum2dnf

Actual results:
Terminal character codes

Expected results:
Normal readable display

Additional info:
This is a particular case. Please feel free to reassign to another component if my guess is incorrect.
