This problem is due to the lacking of the encoding in X, like the fles under
/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/locale, because xterm still relies on X core font but not
Xft. I just suspect there is any solution without the encoding files.
Comment 3 Leon Ho 2005-12-08 17:16:12 EST
Nothing one can do because it requires bitmap. Even if you have a font, xterm
won't be able to do CTL. If fixing terminal, better spend time to fix in vte
instead. Closing as CANTFIX.
