Man cannot reproduce ' character in correct way on Fedora 2 Final
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:45 EST
Description of problem:
Character ' is always reproduced as Ã¢.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
man, version 1.5m
It is always reproducible if man page contains character '
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Execute: man xpdf
2. Search for Ã¢ alias '
Character ' is reproduced as Ã¢
Character ' must be reproduces as '
I have added into:
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
I'm not seeing ' get turned into Ã¢, 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?
Created attachment 104925 [details]
the output for the "man man" command.
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.
The Comment #2 was LANG=zh_TW.Big5
and I used gnome-terminal-2.6.0-2
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.
When both current konsole and gnome-terminal are in proper UTF-8 mode,
as well as the locale, the quote renders correctly.
