Description of problem:
"£" and "³" characters are not shown correctly in gtk+-based apps (XMMS, mplayer, etc.). They are rendered as brackets: "£" as "()" and "³" as "))"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. LANG=pl_PL.UTF-8 xmms
2. Go to the menu
This bug is also visible in FC3. IIRC, in FC2 everything was OK.
Created attachment 115501 [details]
Screenshot of the XMMS
I had to attach screenshot, because mentioned characters are wrongly rendered
in the webbrowser ;-)
The right fix is to port whatever application is still using gtk 1.2 to
gtk 2.x, which offers MUCH better internationalization
No way ;-) I've found the patch, so you can now easyly fix it â
We definitely will not apply that patch, as it is incorrect, however
once someone has implemented the solution suggested by Owen Taylor
in the bug report referenced in comment #3, and it gets checked
into Xorg CVS and does not cause any regressions, we will review
it for consideration in a future update.
