Description Goran Blagojevic 2004-07-04 09:15:46 EDT
Description of problem:
Character ' is always reproduced as â.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
man, version 1.5m

How reproducible:
It is always reproducible if man page contains character '

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Execute: man xpdf
2. Search for â alias '
Actual results:
Character ' is reproduced as â

Expected results:
Character ' must be reproduces as '

Additional info:
I have added into:
export LANG
in order to make it possible writing Serbian letters in Open Office. I
am not sure wether that has affected man in any way or not. Other
applications are not affected. Anyway, I must add lines if I want to
use Open Office, and man pages can be read even some characters are
wrong reproduced.
Comment 1 Barry K. Nathan 2004-07-14 05:25:47 EDT
I'm not seeing ' get turned into â, but I am seeing ' get corrupted in
other ways with your LANG changes. Without them (i.e.
LANG=en_US.UTF-8) I do not have the problem.

BTW, what kind of terminal or terminal emulator are you using?

the output for the "man man" command.
Comment 3 Francis Li 2004-10-08 06:00:41 EDT
Created attachment 104929 [details]
"man man"  command output for LANG=zh_TW.UTF-8

Why should the ' character be converted ?
I suppose it should keep the same one-character in the utf-8.
Comment 4 Francis Li 2004-10-08 06:04:45 EDT
The Comment #2 was LANG=zh_TW.Big5
and I used gnome-terminal-2.6.0-2
Comment 5 Goran Blagojevic 2004-10-08 16:13:55 EDT
The problem is related to konsole, that is to KDE terminal emulator.
If gnome-terminal is being used, no problem exists. It is important
that gnome-terminal is adjust to Unicode encoding.
Comment 6 Eido Inoue 2004-10-22 12:49:06 EDT
When both current konsole and gnome-terminal are in proper UTF-8 mode,
as well as the locale, the quote renders correctly.
