Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 14483
Translated KDE menus include strange letters
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:56 EDT
Installing an Icelandic system and using GNOME produces strange results.
Selecting "KDE Menus" from the main gnome start button gives very strange
that are not Icelandic.
I'm not at all sure how to debug this; I wouldn't know an icelandic character if
I saw one. ;-)
Conceivably the KDE .desktop files have the icelandic translation in an unusual
encoding? Adding Bero to the CC.
I see the same thing in GNOME that "less app.desktop" inside an xterm displays.
So I think the bug is either in the desktop files or in the way locales and
encodings are set up, I guess that would be in X.
I think Ive narrowed down the problem. KDE wants desktop.po to be UTF8 encoded, vesus iso-8859-1
This should be fixed with the move back to (pre-UTF8) KDE 1.x.
