Description Richard Allen 2000-07-23 01:38:26 UTC
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.

Comment 1 Havoc Pennington 2000-07-24 16:13:57 UTC
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.

Comment 2 Havoc Pennington 2000-08-10 23:12:16 UTC
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.

Comment 3 Richard Allen 2000-08-10 23:59:45 UTC
I think Ive narrowed down the problem.  KDE wants desktop.po to be UTF8 encoded, vesus iso-8859-1

Comment 4 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2000-08-14 10:41:36 UTC
This should be fixed with the move back to (pre-UTF8) KDE 1.x.
