Non-ascii characters appear as garbage in XTerm title
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:27 EST
Description of problem:
XTerm title in FC5 shows the current working directory. This works ok with ASCII
characters. But when starting XTerm under GNOME in FC5 and going to a directory
that names has non-ascii characters, the title is garbage (escape sequences).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start XTerm
2. Create directory named Ã¼Ã¶
3. Enter the directory
Escape sequences are shown in the XTerm title instead of the actual characters.
The proper characters should be shown in the XTerm title.
gnome-terminal works all ok. Using bash as shell. Fresh installation with
Yes, xterm-211 now has the 'UTF-8 Titles' menu item and the 'utf8Title' vt100 X
resource to enable display of UTF-8 titles (no previous xterm version did this).
Since we ship with UTF-8 enabled locales by default, I guess this resource
should be set by default in the Red Hat distributions.
I've submitted xterm-211 with the VT100*ut8Title resource enabled by default
to FC-5 Updates/Testing .
xterm-211-1.FC5 has been pushed for FC5, which should resolve this issue. If these problems are still present in this version, then please make note of it in this bug report.
I can confirm that the problem is fixed with xterm-211-1.FC5. Thanks!
xterm-212-1.FC4 has been pushed for fc4, which should resolve this issue. If these problems are still present in this version, then please make note of it in this bug report.
