it's a problem in motif, which does not handle utf8 correctly ATM.

Comment 5 Thomas Woerner 2006-01-20 10:42:00 EST
Please have a look at the new openmotif in Fedora Core development. This is a
beta release of the upcoming openmotif-2.3.0 with UTF-8 support.

At the moment it is not possible to use UTF-8 with the current openmotif versions.

Does this version fixes your problems? Please remember, that the new library
version is 4. 
Comment 6 Horst H. von Brand 2006-01-20 17:43:39 EST
Just checked the attached file with openmotif-2.3.0-0.1.2, xpdf-3.01-10. Looks
fine to me.
Comment 7 Thomas Woerner 2007-07-23 08:27:53 EDT
The problem is that the openmotif version in RHEL-4 is not UTF-8 capable. The
change to the 2.3 verison is not possible, because of a library version change.
Is it ok for you to use the 2.3 test package?
Comment 8 Horst H. von Brand 2007-07-23 09:47:57 EDT
I see no openmotif packages in Fedora rawhide right now...
Comment 9 Thomas Woerner 2007-07-23 09:52:34 EDT
openmotif has been dropped from Fedora completely. Please use the RHEL-5 package
Comment 10 Horst H. von Brand 2007-07-23 16:08:20 EDT
This is quite bad, as all Fedora is moving to UTF-8, and I'd prefer not to have
foreign packages installed (plus RHEL will be left behind by rawhide quite
soon...). Does this mean xpdf is on the "to be deleted" list for Fedora?
Comment 11 Thomas Woerner 2007-07-24 06:17:37 EDT
Yes, maybe. But currently it is using lesstif.
Comment 13 Jens Petersen 2008-05-01 00:17:25 EDT
If there are no plans to fix this then yes let's close it.
Comment 14 Thomas Woerner 2008-07-09 11:27:47 EDT
A very big patch is needed to fix the UTF-8 problem in this old OpenMotif version. 
This also means lots of API changes.

Therefore I have to close this as CANTFIX.
