kprinter is scrambled in Japanese.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run kprinter
2. Select printer
3. Press property button

Seems to be UTF-8 <-> EUC-JP convert problem.
And might happen for Chinese and Korean too.
Paper selection will cause severe problem for users.
So I set severity high.

Screenshot of kprinter in the ja locale
Unfortunately I could not reproduce the result. I used kde-3.3 and
qt-3.3 for the screenshot.
I presume this bug has been fixed. Nakai-san, please reopen the bug if
Reopen - still happens on my FC3.
[nakai@dhcp100 ~]$ rpm -q kdelibs qt
sorry, it's very strange, i cannot reproduce this problem in FC3 with
i started kprinter with LANG=ja_JP.UTF-8 and LANG=ja_JP, and it works.
Could someone else reproduce this problem? Nakai, Could you please
find out why it happens on your machine? Thanks
Similar problem happens on OpenOffice.org.
I guess the scrambled text is generated by CUPS server or so
and all my server runs with Japanese locale at start time.
And I guess KDE or OOo needs some fix in each.
Jens or Tagoh, can you get this tested on your end? I suspect originally it
maybe because the CUPS server has different type of encoding.
It looks good to me. tried with:
but the same problem still appears on OOo, though.
