Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1261508
man page does not display correctly when terminal type is other than UTF8
Last modified: 2016-07-19 13:50:23 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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set terminal encoding to ISO-8859-1
2. man yum2dnf
Terminal character codes
Normal readable display
This is a particular case. Please feel free to reassign to another component if my guess is incorrect.
