Description Christopher Stone 2007-04-17 14:48:43 EDT
Description of problem:
I bet it doesn’t do UTF-8

The above text does not show up properly in konsole with limited default fonts
installed.

Seems installing VLGothic-fonts fixes the issue with konsole, however both xterm
and gnome-terminal display the above text properly without VLGothic-fonts installed.
Comment 1 Christopher Stone 2007-04-29 00:19:34 EDT
for some reason ™ does not show up in konsole, but shows up fine with
gnome-terminal and xterm.
Comment 2 Christopher Stone 2007-05-01 02:11:54 EDT
The characters 〈 and 〉 do not show up in konsole either.
Comment 3 Gianluca Varisco 2007-06-12 06:18:47 EDT
I can confirm that I have the same problem with konsole on F7
(kdebase-3.5.6-12.fc7) but I think that this issue isn't related to
VLGothic-fonts (20070328-1.fc7 installed here), because, anyway, I have the same
problem.
Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2007-06-19 16:52:11 EDT
Than, any ideas here?  I'm at a complete loss.
Comment 5 Ngo Than 2007-07-02 09:18:49 EDT
could you please attach the text file or tell me how i cann reproduce this 
problem? Thanks
Comment 6 Christopher Stone 2007-07-02 09:54:16 EDT
All you have to do in order to reproduce it is simply copy & paste the text in
comments above into a konsole....
Comment 7 Ngo Than 2007-07-02 10:34:08 EDT
i cannot reproduce this problem on my test machine. It works fine for me. 
Here's the screenshot. It seems either font setting problem or missing fonts.
There's a list of font packages installed on my test machine:

pm -qa | grep font
xorg-x11-font-utils-7.1-5.fc7
libfontenc-devel-1.0.4-2.fc7
urw-fonts-2.3-6.1.1

libXfontcache-devel-1.0.4-1.fc7
libXfont-1.2.8-1.fc7
xorg-x11-fonts-Type1-7.1-3.fc7

chkfontpath-1.10.1-1.1
xorg-x11-fonts-truetype-7.1-3.fc7

xorg-x11-fonts-75dpi-7.1-3.fc7
xorg-x11-fonts-ISO8859-1-75dpi-7.1-3.fc7

xorg-x11-fonts-base-7.1-3.fc7
libXfont-devel-1.2.8-1.fc7
xorg-x11-fonts-100dpi-7.1-3.fc7

could you please install missing font packages and try again? Thanks

Comment 9 Christopher Stone 2007-07-02 11:12:33 EDT
Remove fonts-japanese and test again.  You will see that it does not work in
konsole and does work with gnome-terminal and xterm after you remove the
japanese fonts.
Comment 10 Christopher Stone 2007-07-02 11:21:27 EDT
NOTE: The characters mentioned in comments #2 and #3 will not work in konsole
regardless of japanese (or VLGothic) fonts installed.  These characters work
fine in xterm and gnome-terminal.
Comment 11 Christopher Stone 2007-07-02 11:22:24 EDT
Er, that should be comments #1 and #2, (not 2&3).
Comment 12 Ngo Than 2007-07-03 04:49:00 EDT
it's a font rendering issue in qt. reassign to correct component
Comment 13 Christopher Stone 2007-07-03 13:52:03 EDT

^^ This text fails for me in firefox, gnome-terminal and konsole.  However
displays fine with xterm.
Comment 14 Jens Petersen 2007-10-04 01:51:08 EDT
Is this still happening?

I just see a bunch of ?'s in the description and comments above.

Could you attach the text that is not displaying as utf-8 file?

Example Characters that do not show up in Konsole

This attachment shows some sample characters which display perfectly within
gnome-terminal and xterm, but which do not show up properly using konsole.
Comment 16 Jens Petersen 2008-03-04 21:40:48 EST
I think more information is needed: like your locale and list of fonts installed.
Comment 17 Jens Petersen 2008-03-04 21:41:15 EST
Does it still happen for you with kde4/qt4?

Comment 19 Caius Chance 2008-03-05 22:20:10 EST
The konsole could display the above text. However, firefox has problem on
displaying the first text. When I highlighted such text, it could be displayed
instead.

kde-filesystem-4-8.fc9.noarch
kde-settings-kdm-4.0-11.fc9.noarch
kde-l10n-Chinese-4.0.2-1.fc9.noarch

kde-settings-4.0-11.fc9.noarch
kde-settings-pulseaudio-4.0-11.fc9.noarch

Comment 20 Ngo Than 2008-03-28 08:20:34 EDT
