Description of problem:
I can't get norwegian characters like Ã¸Ã¦Ã¥ to work in OpenOffice.org.
I have tried to remove it and installed it again from the CD. But
that didn't work either. I have upgraded the suite to 1.1.2 but that
didnt do the trick either.
OpenOffice.org is the only program i have seen this problem in.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. I open the openoffice writer
2. trying to write something
3. the Ã¸Ã¦Ã¥ doesn't work
Actual Results: I get rare characters...
Expected Results: I should get ÃÃÃ instead.
I have also tried to change the language settings to norwegian, but
*** Bug 133642 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
This is working fine for me when I set the Norwegian keyboard layout
in the panel Menu->Preferences->Keyboard, click Layout tab then add &
move the Norwegian keyboard to the top. I can get the symbols just
fine with 1.1.2-5 from Rawhide. Can you please try with that version?
Still not working,- I get these characters instead: ÃÂ¦ÃÂ¸ÃÂ¥
But it works to copy/paste Ã¸Ã¦Ã¥ to OpenOffice...
This is wierd. Can you do all of the following?
1) paste in here the output of 'locale' in a terminal window
2) paste in here the output of 'ps -aux' in a terminal window
3) paste in here the output of 'rpm -qv iiimf-server'
4) 'rm -rf ~/.rhopenoffice1.1' and re-launch OOo and try it
5) What's the keboard layout, shown as the _first_ item in panel
6) from a terminal, do 'gkb_xmmap no' then '/usr/bin/oowriter' and try
to type those characters
Warning: bad syntax, perhaps a bogus '-'? See http://procps.sf.net/
rpm -qv iiimf-server:
rm -rf ~/.rhopenoffice1.1 :
The characters doesn't work.
I do not have meny->preferences->Keyboard. I find a Keyboard on
System settings and it is set to Norwegian.
The characters doesnt work after "gkb_xmmap no" and "/usr/bind/
oowriter" doesn't work
Sounds quite similar to 132541... lets merge them.
