Description Dawid Gajownik 2005-11-21 17:13:24 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9a1) Gecko/20051107 SeaMonkey/1.5a

Description of problem:
With default settings I'm not able to type in the console (ALT+F1) non-US-ASCII characters. Everything is fine in graphical Emacs. "C-h C RET" shows me something like this:

Coding system for saving this buffer:
  Not set locally, use the default.
Default coding system (for new files):
  u -- utf-8 (alias of mule-utf-8)
Coding system for keyboard input:
Coding system for terminal output:
  u -- utf-8 (alias of mule-utf-8)
Defaults for subprocess I/O:
  decoding: u -- utf-8 (alias of mule-utf-8)
  encoding: u -- utf-8 (alias of mule-utf-8)


This is the same problem as bug #106929

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Open GNU Emacs and try to type some non-US-ASCII characters.

Additional info:

I use “pl_PL.UTF-8” locale and “pl2” keymap. Adding:

(set-keyboard-coding-system 'utf-8)

to the config file resolves the problem. FC4's version is also broken.

Thanks for the report - should be fixed in next devel build (21.4-9).
Comment 2 Dawid Gajownik 2005-11-24 19:11:54 EST
It does not work for me. Additionally, Emacs shows new warning:

End of file during parsing:
Comment 3 Jens Petersen 2005-11-25 04:03:45 EST
Doh, missed a paren: should be better in 21.4-10.
